Championship

Leeds United should continue to build on their impressive start and target this international defender in January

Leeds United are off to a flyer in the Championship following two impressive wins over potential promotion rivals. 

Manager Marcelo Bielsa is having a big effect it seems, and at the moment, they look like they could well run away with things based on their opening two weekends.

However, despite a positive start, there is always room for improvement, and one such player we here at the Tavern think would be a superb addition is Belgium and Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata, who is valued at a relatively measley £1.8m by Transfermarkt. 

The impressive former Man City ace was a valuable member of the Belgium squad over in Russia this summer, as he played his part in cementing a third placed finish for Roberto Martinez’s men.

Boyata is a big strong defender, and his time with Celtic has been impressive, with plenty of clubs taking note of his form. His time in England with City previously never took off, and he might well be open to the challenge of proving himself in the English game again.

While Premier League clubs will no doubt also be sniffing, Leeds look to be a club on the up, and Boyata would  make what is an already talented squad, even better.

Leeds fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
