Leeds United will be looking to sign around five players during the summer transfer window, according to The Athletic‘s Phil Hay.
The Whites have enjoyed an impressive first season back in the Premier League, rarely looking relegation-threatened at any point.
While some from outside the club may have tipped Marcelo Bielsa’s side to return to the Championship, they now sit 11th in the table and are fresh off the back of a 2-1 win away to Fulham.
Despite this, Leeds will know they have to keep strengthening in order to maintain their momentum with Bielsa at the helm.
Hay tips Leeds to make numerous additions
“I’m told they’ll look at signing around five players in the summer.
“The numbers can’t be wild because a) good players at this level are expensive and b) if Bielsa stays on, he doesn’t like massive overhauls. But I think we can all see what needs to be done.”
Transfer Tavern take
As mentioned, it is vital that Leeds don’t rest on their laurels, continuing to make key signings and ensuring competition for places is greater than ever.
The worst thing they could do is sit still and not build on their current success, suddenly finding themselves in a relegation battle next season. They only need to look at the decline of fellow Yorkshire side Sheffield United as an example of ‘second season syndrome’ back at Premier League level.
