Leeds United correspondent Adam Pope has shared details of a transfer meeting between Jesse Marsch and Victor Orta.
The Lowdown: Next few months will be key
The Whites still don’t know what division they will be playing in for 2022/23 ahead of Marsch’s first full season in charge at Elland Road.
After Saturday’s trip to Watford, Leeds now sit nine points clear of the relegation zone with six games remaining.
Three points at Vicarage Road appear to have gone a long way in their attempts to avoid the drop, and Marsch and Orta met prior to the clash to discuss the summer transfer window.
The Latest: Pope on Leeds transfer plans
Pope, who was at Thorp Arch on Thursday afternoon for Marsch’s press conference, tweeted that both Marsch and Orta met on Wednesday to create profiles of who they want to sign.
He added that no decisions were made in regards to incomings and outgoings following discussions.
How many signings do Leeds need to make this summer?
The Verdict: Good news
It is positive to know that Orta will now understand what type of player Marsch is seeking, and should the club remain in the top flight, it could be an exciting window for the Leeds faithful.
Reports have hinted that Brenden Aaronson remains a target, while a new striker, full-back reinforcements and finding cover for the exit-linked Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha could also be on the agenda.
They first need to guarantee a third season of Premier League football, but the club are already making transfer preparations under the American, which can only be good news.
