RB Leipzig striker Jean-Kevin Augustin has returned to the team after his loan with Leeds United wasn't renewed, creating an issue over a transfer fee should the English Championship club get promoted.
The deal reported by GFFN states that a 21 million Euro fee would be paid and a permanent transfer would tke place should the team reach promotion. Not only did that happen but Leeds has decided that they don't want the player any longer.
Augustin has been a controversial figure since joining Leipzig in 2017. The Parisian was thought to be the future of the club, arriving from Paris Saint Germain's youth system. His stay has only produced 20 goals over two seasons and his loan spells to Monaco and Leeds haven't shown much improvement either. The latest move to England was meant to be a loan that would become permanent. However the COVID-19 pandemic has drained the finances of many clubs, forcing them to go back on their decisions.
Whether or not Leipzig have given up on Augustin remains to be seen. However, he is young and has the potential to deliver should they give him a chance in 2021. There will be room for him to grow with the departure of Timo Werner and Nagelsmann's need for striker options as they will be in three competitions next year.
