Leeds: Alan Hutton reacts to Marc Roca move

Leeds: Alan Hutton reacts to Marc Roca move -Leeds United News

Pundit Alan Hutton has been reacting to Leeds United’s move for Marc Roca, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Roca deal

Roca was officially announced as a Whites player on Friday evening, becoming the club’s third addition of the summer after Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen.

The Spanish midfielder has penned a four-year contract at Elland Road and has cost an initial £10m. He becomes the second holding midfielder at the club alongside Kalvin Phillips, who has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City.

The Latest: Hutton reacts

Hutton, who now contributes for Sky Sports, was talking to FI regarding the move for Roca.

He admitted he was ‘surprised’ at how quick the club have acted this summer and labelled Roca as a ‘key’ addition.

“I’m slightly surprised to see them doing this business so quickly.

“Especially after the January window didn’t go to plan for them. They’ve obviously learned from their mistakes and they’re trying to get their business done early.

“Going for a midfielder with that sort of experience is key for them.

“We don’t know what is going to happen with Kalvin Phillips, but they’re acting quickly to get their targets in so that they can move forward ahead of the new season.”

The Verdict: Positive signs

Roca was never viewed as a replacement for Phillips, so Leeds will need to go after another defensive midfielder should he make the move to the Etihad.

How many more signings do Leeds need after Aaronson, Kristensen and Roca?









All of the signs so far this summer when it comes to incomings have been extremely positive and swift, with Andrea Radrizzani backing up his recent promise when it comes to signings.

It looks as if there will be more to come even if Phillips remains at the club, with a new centre-forward thought to be on the agenda after a bid was made for PSG’s Arnaud Kalimuendo.
