Leeds United fans are a popular bunch in The Transfer Tavern, with the passionate Yorkshire bunch always keen for a chat about their beloved Whites.
Sitting near the top of the Championship table after an excellent start to the new campaign, you can only begin to imagine just how excited this resolute bunch are after years of mediocrity following their relegation from the Premier League in 2004.
With boss Thomas Christiansen at the helm, the club look destined for great things, and there are very few Whites’ fans in The Tavern that are not forecasting promotion to the top flight by May next year.
The club invested well in the summer, with director of football Victor Orta’s work behind the scenes proving a hit both on and off the bitch, and the Spaniard could be at it again in January, with The Daily Mail reporting that the club are considering a bid for Osasuna midfielder, Fran Merida.
The club have already had great success plucking players from the Spanish second tier this year, with Samu Saiz proving to be an astonishing acquisition since arriving from Huesca in the summer.
Our landlord took to the tables to have a chat with Leeds fans about the potential signing of Merida and raised three very good points as to why he is the perfect January target.
