With the January transfer window around the corner, Leeds United supporters will be keen to discover what the club plan to do. Phil Hay has provided an update which outlines what he thinks they will do when the window opens.
Hay provides Leeds transfer update
Phil Hay tweeted: “A centre mid was the thing they didn’t land in the last window but they’re minded to do as little as possible in January, firstly because the value can be poor but secondly because joining Bielsa mid-season is tough”
This news makes perfect sense
Leeds cannot complain about their season so far, with victories like the recent one against Everton showing that they aren’t just in the division to try and stay in the top flight but to compete for much more than that. They currently sit in 12th place however they are only three points behind fifth-placed West Ham.
They were heavily linked to midfielder Rodrigo de Paul in the summer, so it would be best to look to acquire him after they see how well they have done this season.
The amount of work the players put in on the pitch is often praised a lot, with Marcelo Bielsa installing a great work ethic around the squad.
Therefore, it makes sense that the manager doesn’t want to disturb the team by bringing in any new recruits halfway through the season but in this very different campaign, he could be forced into the January market as injuries, covid and fatigue are almost certain to strike the squad at some point.
