Leeds United supporters have been pretty upbeat in the Transfer Tavern recently after seeing their side produce a decent performance in their 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Friday night, a result which kept them eighth in the Championship table.
Thomas Christiansen’s men went into their clash with the high-flying Villans off the back of beating Barnsley 2-0 in the Yorkshire derby a week before, and they looked on course to record a second successive victory when Pontus Jansson gave them a deserved lead after just 19 minutes. However, the home side were unable to bag that crucial second and Steve Bruce’s Villa began to grow into the contest, eventually netting the equaliser 19 minutes from time when substitute Henri Lansbury fired past the helpless Felix Wiedwald in the Leeds goal to preserve a point for the visitors.
Consequently, there have been many satisfied Leeds fans in the Tavern in recent days yet also several who were disappointed that their team were unable to clinch the three points, but attentions are already turning to their trip to struggling Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
And with the January transfer window just around the corner, Christiansen and the Leeds hierarchy may well be considering possible transfer targets as they seek to return to the Premier League for the first time since 2004.
And one club they may look at is Everton, who haven’t quite made the start many expected them to in the top-flight this term, and as such the future of several players is very much uncertain going into the New Year.
