Leeds United are one of the main contenders for promotion from the Sky Bet Championship yet again this year with the Whites flying along under Marcelo Bielsa.
The men from Elland Road have had a good first third of the season and the plan will be to replicate such form in the next two, with the hectic festive period on the horizon.
Indeed, after that is the January window and it remains to be seen whether the Whites will look to strengthen their side – though Victor Orta’s comments suggest that they might well have a quiet window.
This update comes from Adam Pope on Twitter:
Leeds United's director of football Victor Orta has told Italian media that it will be a quiet January transfer window for #LUFC
In the article below he says its a difficult window to recruit in as only 25% of targets are successful.

Orta and the Whites were fairly quiet last January window and some have suggested that that was the reason they ended up falling short in the promotion race last year.
Even so, they look set to stick rather than twist in the next window, and fans have reacted to that in numbers.
Here’s what has been said:
Trying the madness route to promition then repeating the same methods, and hoping for a different outcome.
