Exclusive: Ex-Leeds ace slams transfer window -Leeds United News

Former Leeds United star David Norris insists that the club did not manage to bring in enough squad depth in the summer transfer window.

The Whites did not manage to sign a back-up striker for Patrick Bamford, nor did they bring in depth behind defensive midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

Throughout the summer, Leeds signed goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson, left-back Junior Firpo and wingers Jack Harrison and Daniel James.

Is Bielsa Leeds' greatest ever manager?

Yes

Yes

No

The deal for James came about in the final week of the transfer window, as he was brought in from Manchester United for a fee of £25m.

But Norris does not think the club have done enough in the window, and is concerned that they have not managed to add enough quality into the squad.

Indeed, he believes that a number 10 was also needed, in addition to a striker and a midfielder, to round out Bielsa’s squad.

The ex-Whites star said: “They haven’t got the replacement striker I was hoping they would get, the cover for Kalvin Phillips in the middle there as well, I would have liked to have seen someone come up.

“Another number 10 potentially just as they can’t afford any of the key players to be injured so I still think they haven’t got enough depth in the key positions.”

Leeds face West Ham United this weekend in search of their first win of the season.
