Leeds United are hoping to complete the signing of trialist Alexandre Mendy.The tricky French winger spent much of pre season with Leeds and played in the friendlies against Rochdale, Sheffield Wednesday, Sandefjord and Newcastle.Leeds boss Simon Grayson is hoping to sort out a deal for the free agent but has admitted there is 'complications` with the deal.Grayson is determined to bring the 27 year old to Elland Road, speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Grayson said, "We`re looking to see if there`s something we can do with him because we feel he`s got potential."There`s a few complications but he`s impressed us. There`s an option if we can get him that we might send him out on loan to learn the English game but he`s done himself no harm."Mendy has spent the last eight seasons playing in the Czech top flight.His best spell came with FK Mlada Boleslav who he originally joined on loan in 2007 and he appeared for them in the UEFA Europa League.Boleslav went out in the group stages despite him scoring in games against Spanish side Villareal and Swedish side IF Elsborg and he joined the side on a full time basis in 2008.
Last season Mendy helped the side finish eighth last season and they won their first domestic trophy in their history. Boleslav beat SK Sigma Olumouc 4-3 on penalties, after a 1-1 draw in normal time in the Czech Republic Football Cup, their version of the FA Cup.
Mendy completed the ninety minutes in the final and scored from the penalty spot in the shoot out, to help the club qualify for the Europa League.
He played in all thirty games for Boleslav last season and netted six times.
The winger has made over 200 appearances during eight seasons in the Gambrinus Liga and as earned a reputation as a dynamic, technical attacker.
