Leeds: Journalist expects more American additions at Elland Road

Leeds: Journalist expects more American additions at Elland Road -Leeds United News

Leeds United could bring in a number of American players during the summer after the arrival of Jesse Marsch as manager, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.

The Lowdown: Marsch arrives at Elland Road

Marcelo Bielsa was relieved of his duties as Whites manager last month, in what was a big call considering the Argentine’s popularity at Elland Road.

Marsch came in as his replacement, being tasked with keeping Leeds in the Premier League after a largely disappointing season.

After back-to-back defeats against Leicester City and Aston Villa to begin his reign, the American picked up his first win as boss on Sunday as the Whites beat Norwich City 2-1 at home in stoppage time.

The Latest: O’Rourke expects American influx at Leeds

Spaking to GiveMeSport, O’Rourke believes that Marsch’s arrival at Leeds could be the start of an American invasion at the club.

The journalist predicted: “It’s all pointing to there possibly being a lot of Americans and players that Jesse Marsch knows coming to Elland Road in the near future.”

The Verdict: Aaronson this summer?

Reports that 49ers Enterprises are gradually taking more control of Leeds certainly seems to enhance this opinion, with an American nucleus growing within Elland Road.

What it could mean is that the chances of signing Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Brenden Aaronson are enhanced this summer, with the 21-year-old linked with a move throughout January. Furthermore, he has worked with Marsch before at the Austrian club, so that pre-existing relationship could increase the chances of the duo working together once more.

The 18-cap USA international could be an exciting arrival, sparking an influx of signings from across the Atlantic in the coming years, assuming that the Leeds manager earns the time to make a lasting impact at Elland Road.
