Championship

Baker done but Leeds United’s Bielsa right to Joe Bryan like the plague

There’s more transfer news Leeds fans, so don’t leave the Transfer Tavern just yet. 

Marco Bielsa’s Leeds revolution is in full swing. He’s already brought in Chelsea’s Lewis Baker and is apparently close to sealing a deal for Derby County’s Matej Vydra. Next on the list of apparent targets is Bristol City’s, Joe Bryan.

The Breakdown

According to reports, interest in Joe Bryan has increased over the last few days. The Robins have already sold Bobby Reid and Aden Flint as they look to cash on their stars. According to the Mirror, Joe Brayn is next on the list of departures. Bryan only has one year left on his contract and is therefore attracting interest from Leeds, Burnley, Bournemouth and Middlesbrough.

Bielsa is keen to bring in a new left-back as he looks to reshape, and is ideally looking for one with Championship experience. According to Bristol Live, however, Bielsa is not interested in a move for Bryan.

Although the new Leeds boss is looking for a new fullback, he may already have one on his books who could do a job for the team.

Tom Pearce wasn’t on the radar for most Leeds fans at the beginning of last season. The highly-rated academy prospect made his debut against Sheffield United and in total played five games for the club. Such were his solid performances that he was called up to the England under-21 squad for the Toulon Tournament this summer.

Bielsa may want another fullback this summer but he could well already have one in his midst.

Is Tom Pearce the man to step in Leeds fans?
