Last minute: These 2 loan signings that would seal Leeds’ promotion

Last minute: These 2 loan signings that would seal Leeds’ promotion

It’s been an excellent start to the season for Leeds United. Marcelo Bielsa’s men are unbeaten and have ten points from four matches. This could be the season the Whites finally gain promotion to the Premier League, to really seal their fete, they could perhaps do with a couple more signings. 

The Argentine boss will be delighted with how things are going so far at the West Yorkshire outfit. Three straight wins kicked off the campaign, before a solid 2-2 draw away to fellow high-flyers Swansea City. These results have got fans dreaming of a promotion winning season.

Any question over whether Bielsa’s unique tactical approach have been put to the side, as he has shown a willingness to adapt and Leeds have dominated games with their high pressing and technical ability. Kemar Roofe has been the jewel in the crown for the Elland Road outfit, and his game already looks to have come on leaps and bounds under ‘El Loco’.

With the EFL loan window slamming shut soon, here are two loan signings who could be game changers for Leeds United…

Reiss Nelson

His first-team opportunities are going to be severely limited in the Premier League this season. A raw talent, the winger’s pace and technical ability will cause plenty of problems for all Championship defences.

One of the most exciting prospects to come out of Arsenal for years, the opportunity for regular first-team football might be favoured by Reiss Nelson himself, rather than being limited to cup football under Unai Emery.

The rapid winger is capped by England’s youth sides.

Tammy Abraham

Tammy Abraham is still at Stamford Bridge, and the forward is unlikely to get much game time with Maurizio Sarri at the club, looking for instant success rather than to develop young players.

The forward didn’t make much of an impact last season in the Premier League with Swansea City, but he has proved before he is a handful in the Championship, with a highly successful spell with Bristol City.

Having Tammy Abraham on their books would give the Whites unquestionably the best strike-force in the Championship, as they already have Patrick Bamford and Kemar Roofe at the club.
