Leeds handed latest boost as extent of midfielder’s impact is laid bare

Our Leeds fans here in the Transfer Tavern are very happy with how their side is looking at the moment.

You can understand why, too, with the Whites going very well in the league and looking like strong contenders to get into the play-off places at the very least.

Of course, they’ll be aiming to go up automatically and a win against Reading this weekend would surely help that cause with many of their players in great form at the moment.

Certainly, one man who has come in and done well when asked is Alfonso Pedraza – the loan signing from Villarreal in January.

His creativity has helped unlock things at very important times and it certainly seems that his old club are missing him – underlining his quality.

He was at Lugo on loan and looked set to help them to promotion but since he has left they have fallen away in the second division in Spain.

Indeed, speaking to La Vozde Galicia, Lugo defender Jordi Calavera has revealed just how much they miss him:

“He was an important player for us, I will not deny it, but I can’t hide either.”

Bad news for Lugo, then, but good news for Leeds fans who clearly have a classy player in their midst.

Thoughts, Leeds fans? Let us know below!
