Exclusive: Pundit wants to see Leeds make a big statement signing

Exclusive: Pundit wants to see Leeds make a big statement signing - Leeds United News

Leeds have secured themselves a top-half finish in their first season back in the Premier League and David Norris, who joined on a free transfer back in 2012, has exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that he wants to see his former club make a big statement signing this summer.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have been credited with a long-standing interest in Argentina midfielder, Rodrigo De Paul, with whom they even reportedly agreed personal terms with last summer.

Will Leeds sign De Paul?





Leeds made some smart signings that have helped the team become a force in the Premier League this season, with the likes of Raphinha, Diego Llorente and Rodrigo all have proven their worth.

Bielsa will be wanting to keep his group of players together heading into next season and adding a big name could be what they need to push for top four, that is according to Norris, who spoke exclusively to The Transfer Tavern:

I think something like that would take them to the next level because the standards they have set this season and the attacking football they’ve played has been amazing.

“So, I think if they bring in a big summer signing then I think that lets everyone know that they’re ready to gatecrash the top four or five spots, and they will give it a go.”
