Leeds: Phil Hay shares January transfer plans

Leeds: Phil Hay shares January transfer plans -Leeds United News

Leeds United will look to sign a young left-back and forward in the New Year, according to Phil Hay.

The Lowdown: Summer business

The Whites were active in the summer ahead of Jesse Marsch’s first full season in charge at Elland Road, with seven new signings made.

The club did receive big fees for Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, which ultimately paid for big arrivals such as Brenden Aaronson, Luis Sinisterra and Tyler Adams.

Leeds have tended to avoid any winter window business in recent years, but it looks as if that might change in 2023 in what appears to be an exciting update for supporters.

The Latest: Hay’s claim

Hay shared a link to a story for The Athletic on Twitter, with the Whites currently out in Spain in what he describes as feeling like another pre-season.

The reliable reporter described the training camp plans and intense double sessions, but also added that a young left-back and forward are ‘on the agenda’ at Elland Road – surely music to the ears of fans hoping for a busier winter window than usual.

The Verdict: Right move

Centre-back Pascal Struijk has had to fill in for Junior Firpo this season and has actually been the club’s best-performing player, as per WhoScored.

However, looking to bring in a young left-back to rival the pair seems to be smart, whereas a new forward seems a must despite Rodrigo having nine Premier League goals to his name this season.

Patrick Bamford hasn’t scored a competitive goal in 2022 and has once again struggled with fitness, so a new striker could help the club avoid another serious battle against relegation.
