For the first time in years, Leeds United fans are daring to dream. Indeed, while the club have suffered the indignity of false dawns before, life under Marcelo Bielsa certainly looks to be the real deal and dreams of a return to the Premier League are very much on the agenda.
Though the Whites have been there or thereabouts for much of the campaign, those at Elland Road must be tempted to delve into the transfer market. Bielsa himself may have cast doubt on any potential activity, though the fact they are within touching distance of a long-awaited top-flight return must be having Leeds fans begging for reinforcement.
Still, the club don’t boast an overly successful history when it comes to shopping in the New Year. Over the years – and particularly recently – the Yorkshire giants have only recently brought in duds, with some notable exceptions. In fact, the gems have been so rare, we decided to rank the top five in the video below.
So close to the Premier League, it’ll be interesting to see whether or not Bielsa does opt to spend this month. If he does, he’s got to hope it goes as well as some of the deals in the video.
