Sky Sports have claimed live-on-air that Leeds United are keen to add to their midfield options during the January transfer window.
The Lowdown: First through the door…
The Whites have already secured their first addition of 2022 in striker Mateo Joseph Fernandez. The club announced on Tuesday evening that the 18-year-old has joined from Spanish side Espanyol and has penned a three-and-a-half-year contract in Yorkshire.
How many signings should Leeds make in January?
Fernandez will go straight into Mark Jackson’s Under-23 side, with attentions now turning to some senior signings for Marcelo Bielsa, who has a number of star players out injured, one of which being Kalvin Phillips.
The Latest: Sky Sports claim
Sky Sports shared a clip from their live transfer centre show on their online blog (January 4, 11:02).
When it came to Leeds, as relayed by MOT Leeds News, reliable reporter Dharmesh Sheth said:
“Leeds United, they want to strengthen in midfield but the chief executive, Angus Kinnear, admits it’s a big challenge to recruit in this month.”
The Verdict: Who could come in?
Victor Orta is thought to be after defensive and attacking midfielders this month, with a number of players linked in recent weeks.
Leeds could do with making early progress this month when it comes to bolstering their midfield ranks, especially with a crunch clash with relegation rivals Newcastle United on January 22, so hopefully, by that point, Bielsa will have at least one new midfielder to call upon.
