A lot of Leeds fans have been taking issue with the fact that their first friendly of the summer is in just 13 days. The club has made just one signing and have seen a lot of players leave on-loan. The Whites’ squad is very thin and it’s seriously worrying some of the club’s supporters. Fans can get tickets for their first friendly against Guiseley on the Eventbrite.

Whilst it’s true that the majority of Championship sides have been slow to act in the transfer window so far, at Elland Road the fans are starting to get out of hand. The club has been in talks for a lot of players but for the most part, deals have failed to materialise and so far it’s just the loan signing of Lewis Baker that has been positive for the fans. Marcelo Bielsa could soon be welcoming Chelsea’s Jamal Backman on-loan to, but for now, it’s looking bleak.
The fans have been left in the dark with a lot of deals. Most fans seemed to think that Derby’s Matej Vydra was a nailed on signing but that trail has now gone cold whilst deals for the likes of Abel Hernandez and David Stockdale never truly got going. The season is less than four weeks away and things don’t look great for the club who will be relying on some Bielsa magic to make things happen when the season comes around.

The Leeds fans are starting to get worried about their lack of transfer activity and it could be a long pre-season for the supporters.
