The Leeds United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are under no illusions when it comes to the summer window. Indeed, after yet another entirely forgettable campaign in the Championship, the overhaul needs to continue in a few months time to try and give Paul Heckingbottom the best possible chance of leading a promotion charge.
With that in mind, the Whites could do with introducing some more pace into the side. To that end, perhaps they should consider a move for Hibernian forward, Martin Boyle. The 24-year-old has developed into one of the most direct and damaging forwards in the Scottish game while working under Neil Lennon up at Easter Road and was hugely unlucky not to be called up for the national side.
Someone who can get fans off their seats, the former Dundee man could compliment Pablo Hernandez and give the Whites an extra option behind a central striker. Not having that kind of flexibility has been a major problem for the Yorkshire giants this season, so he’d certainly help. Clearly, it’d be a step up for Boyle, though he’s developed into a searingly quick wide forward who can help carry a counter-attack in recent months and perhaps deserves a chance on a bigger stage.
Valued at just £405k by Transfermarkt, Lennon’s development of the ex-Aberdeen youngster has helped eradicate some of the rawness that previously left fans so frustrated and, when adding that to his already impressive physical abilities, Leeds would be getting a winger to light up Elland Road.
