Being a Leeds fan has been tough over the last few weeks. The fans have finally come down off the high of securing Marcelo Bielsa as their gaffer and now their attention is focused on new signings. In this case, though, it’s a lack of signings and the fans have been getting increasingly frustrated as more players are pedalled out on loan without a hint of any incomings.
Another departure from Elland Road – Leeds United striker Mallik Wilks joins Doncaster Rovers on loan until January 2. #lufc

Young Mallik Wilks has had most Leeds fans excited. The striker has pace in abundance and has shown many of the club’s fans that he has the potential to go and be a fan favourite at Elland Road. However, he won’t be given the chance to show that this season as he’s been sent out on a half a season loan to Doncaster and will return in early January, hopefully with some good form and goals behind him.
The main issue among the fans though is that they are running out of time to get some signings over the line. The club so far have signed Lewis Baker on-loan from Chelsea and they’re nearing the completion of another loan-signing from The Blues in the form of menacing shot-stopper, Jamal Blackman. The club were nearing the completion of the signing of Matej Vydra but that deal appears t have fallen through with the fans left very worried.

Seeming like we need to free wages up before we sign anyone, what do you reckon?

We are such a shambles. It appears to me that the powers that be think Bielsa will be able to work miracles.

Apparently the transfer window is quick & easy in terms of outgoings.
Incomings on the other hand……………..

Good luck to the lad like every professional you need to play

Pity, a year ago he looked like dynamite in the youth setup

From the tweets above you can see that the fans aren’t happy at Wilks loan and will be keen to get some signings through the door soon.
