Hay has positive update about Jamal Blackman’s move to Leeds

Leeds United may be in for a piece of good news finally this summer as Marcelo Bielsa looks to rebuild his squad.

The newly-appointed manager will have started life to the Whites a little frustrated with their inability to get his desired transfer targets across the line, with financial implications being thought as the key factor.

The likes of Matej Vydra, Abel Hernandez and David Stockdale are all names, amongst plenty of others, who are thought to have been additions at Elland Road this summer, however, for one reason or another, they have failed to materialise.

Bielsa has managed to bring Lewis Baker on loan from Chelsea, and it appears that he may have been able to bring one of his team-mates from the Premier League outfit along with him as well.

According to Phil Hay, who is a reliable journalist for the Yorkshire Evening Post, he has stated on his Twitter profile that a deal for Jamal Blackman is looking good.

The young goalkeeper has proven himself in the Championship with his performances with Sheffield United last season and is felt that he could provide the club with a reliable platform as they look to challenge for top-flight football.

The Verdict:

The positive news from Hay will be welcomed by Leeds this summer after their struggles to land some of their targets.

The goalkeeper should prove to be a solid addition for the upcoming campaign and the fans will be hoping it is the start of a successful period of signings.
