Leeds United should be doing all they can to land Cameron Carter-Vickers

Leeds United remain unbeaten since Marcelo Bielsa took the reins at Elland Road.

The Whites made the former Argentina and Chile boss their highest paid manager in history after parting ways with Paul Heckingbottom at the end of the season. Bielsa has quickly repaid their faith with three wins from four in the Championship. Leeds maintained their unbeaten run against Swansea, fighting back from two goals down to rescue a point.

The draw against the Swans highlighted the need to bring in a centre-back before the end of the month. EFL clubs can still sign players on loan despite the window closing two weeks ago. Liam Cooper pulled out of the fixture with injury leaving the Whites low on options at the back.

The perfect addition to the squad could be Tottenham defender – Cameron Carter-Vickers. Valued at £900k by Transfermarkt, the defender joined the Lilywhites at the age of ten and has spent multiple seasons out on loan. With his route to the first-team still blocked, reports have confirmed that the 20-year-old will spend another spell away from the club. Swansea are reportedly keen to sign him, but Leeds should do everything in their power to beat them to it.

The American is a no-nonsense defender who would be an excellent addition to the squad. Working with Bielsa could do wonders for his development and exposure to first-team football will be key. Carter-Vickers already has experience in the Championship following loan spells with both Sheffield United and Ipswich Town meaning settling in at Yorkshire should be no problem.

Moving to Elland Road this summer is a move that works for all parties.
