Introducing: Karl Darlow as the ideal Leeds signing

Leeds United will need to look for a new goalkeeper once the January transfer window opens next month.

The Whites have had their fair share of injuries this season, which has also included a serious one to their second choice.

Jamal Blackman, who had initially arrived at Elland Road on loan from Chelsea, has since had to return to the Premier League giants after he suffered a broken leg.

Marcelo Bielsa has been linked with bringing a new shot-stopper to the club ever since, however, one of the latest men to have been rumoured with a move to Yorkshire could be a great addition.

Newcastle United’s Karl Darlow has been touted with a move to join Leeds in the January transfer window, as per Football Insider.

The goalkeeper appears to be out of favour at the Premier League side with Martin Dubravka playing a key role for the Magpies since joining them last winter.

The 28-year-old played a crucial role for the Toon Army during their stint in the Championship and was arguably one of the club’s most important players in their title-winning campaign.

And, that should make him an ideal and extremely attractive option for Leeds to try and add this winter.

With doubts over Bailey Peacock-Farrell’s performances creeping in every now and again, Darlow would certainly help to bolster the position.

The experienced professional would be able to provide the Northern Ireland international some much-needed competition, as well as giving the Championship outfit some added depth to their ranks.

Additionally, he could also benefit Peacock-Farrell in a capacity as a mentor, as he would be able to offer the youngster some valuable experience and knowledge which could also benefit Leeds in the long-term future.
