However, increasing interest in his talents has led to them considering making a quick and substantial profit on their option.
The Holland U21 international has scored 16 goals this season and is one of the candidates for the Belgian Pro League’s player of the season and young player of the season.
His confidence sometimes brought rebuke from coaching staff at Ajax but he has been a revelation in Belgium which has prompted Leeds’ attention.

Lang can play on either wing or as a centre forward and that versatility appeals to Marcelo Bielsa.
The Argentine coach is close to finalising a new contract extension at Elland Road.
He is hopeful the club can add three new signings, including a left-back, to kick on from their impressive ninth place finish in the Premier League.
