Phil Hay cold pours water on potential January deal

Phil Hay cold pours water on potential January deal

Leeds United need to be active in the transfer window next month after suffering so many injuries this season. 

Marcelo Bielsa has had to work with a threadbare squad for most of this season and has at times lost key players such as Kemar Roofe, Pablo Hernandez and now most recently, Liam Cooper and Luke Ayling.

Due to that, he has to use some of the academy players to supplement the squad but realistically, he can’t continue to do that throughout the whole season and must bring in some new recruits.

The club has been forced to send Jamal Blackman back to Chelsea following his injury and therefore, they must find a replacement to back up Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

The club had been linked with a move for Kieren Westwood next month but according to Yorkshire Evening Post reporter, Phil Hay, it seems incredibly unlikely that Leeds will sign the Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper next year.

The Breakdown

At such a crucial point in the season and considering the number of injuries that Leeds have picked up over the last few weeks, it would seem foolish not to bring any new players in, especially a new goalkeeper.

Although Bailey Peacock-Farrell has returned to some semblance of form lately, United need to strengthen between the posts. While Westwood may not be the man for the club, they must look elsewhere.

Leeds simply need someone to come in to at least provided cover and possibly replace the youngster in goal.
