Leeds: Whites eye up Ross Barkley loan move -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United are reportedly eyeing up a loan move for Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley in January, with a transfer ‘under consideration’.

The Lowdown: Barkley not playing for Chelsea

The 28-year-old has been a peripheral figure for the Blues so far this season, starting just one Premier League match in total.

Barkley finds himself well down the midfield pecking order, and with the 2022 World Cup looming, he may be looking for minutes elsewhere.

With Leeds potentially looking at midfield reinforcements in January, the former Everton man looks like a genuine target.

The Latest: Leeds keen on loan move

According to The Daily Mail, Leeds are keen on acquiring Barkley’s signature on a temporary deal, seeing him as a strong contender to come in.

The £15.3m-rated Englishman has registered 11 goals and assists apiece in 94 appearances for Chelsea.

The Verdict: Strong mid-season addition

Barkley may not have made the grade at Chelsea but he could be an excellent signing for Leeds, given the technical quality he possesses.

He was once hailed as a potentially ‘world-class’ player by Roberto Martinez and has scored six goals in 33 caps for England, so he could add an extra dimension to Leeds’ midfield.

A loan move also feels less risky than a permanent deal because if he fails to excel at Elland Road he will simply return to Chelsea in the summer.
