Leeds United are not looking to sign former midfielder Ronaldo Vieira this month, according to The Mirror’s David Anderson.
The Lowdown: Italian reports
The Whites are looking to bring in two midfielders before the end of the month, with numerous updates emerging from Italy regarding Vieira.
Do you think Leeds will sign a midfielder this month?
I'm not so sure now...
The 23-year-old has recently returned to Sampdoria’s matchday squad following a lengthy period out through injury, with reports towards the end of 2021 suggesting Vieira was ‘ready to return home’ with his bags packed.
A recent story went as far as to say Leeds are ready to sign Vieira over the coming weeks, however, it doesn’t seem as if that will materialise after all.
The Latest: Anderson’s post
Anderson took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to provide an update on the Englishman.
This is what he had to say, revealing the Whites are not making a move for Vieira.
“I know Leeds fans would rather hear who they are trying to sign, but it is my understanding that they are not attempting to re-sign old boy Ronaldo Vieira.”
The Verdict: Correct call?
Vieira’s last competitive appearance came way back in February though, so it wouldn’t make sense to bring an injury-hit midfielder to rescue Leeds’ injury-hit squad.
There’s no denying that the Whites need additions in the middle of the pitch before the month is out, however, they need to be the correct ones in both the short and long term, so it seems to be the right move to not pursue Vieira going off his recent injury woes.
