Leeds United are still eyeing up ‘three to four midfielders’ in the January transfer window, according to journalist David Anderson.
The Lowdown: Leeds desperate for a midfielder
The Whites have been plagued by injuries throughout this season and they currently look light in the middle of the park, in terms of options.
The Latest: Journalist makes fresh claim
Speaking to Give Me Sport, Anderson claimed Victor Orta and co are looking at a move for a midfielder, even though money is hard to come by at present:
“What I’m being told is that they’re looking at three to four midfielders.
“They want to sign at least one. It’s a delicate one because they don’t have pots of cash because they don’t really plan to spend money in January. Normally they like to spend in summer.”
The Verdict: At least one needed
It would be a huge surprise if January ticked by and no midfielder came in, with Phillips’ absence making it essential that more depth is added.
In fact, one signing should be the bare minimum, with a relegation battle potentially on the cards and another possible injury setback for Forshaw giving Marcelo Bielsa even fewer options.
The hope is that someone of Nandez or O’Brien’s ilk arrives in the coming weeks, in what would be a much-needed boost, with an injection of fresh blood required.
