Transfer Tavern take
Statistically, Colley could prove to be a solid signing by the Whites.
As per WhoScored, the 28-year-old has averaged a league match rating of 6.81 this season. That’s higher than two of Leeds’ summer signings in the same position, Diego Llorente (6.78) and Robin Koch (6.59).
It’s also a better rating than Whites youngster Pascal Struijk (6.78), however, along with Liam Cooper, Leeds appear fairly well-stocked at centre-back.
It seems as if Marcelo Bielsa likes having a small squad, so having five centre-back options could be too many for the Argentine ahead of the 2021/22 season.
