Leeds United to fight Aston Villa for Karl Darlow

Leeds United to fight Aston Villa for Karl Darlow

Once again, Leeds pulled off yet another win and look as though they’re just starting to build some solid form. 

After being decimated by injuries over the last few weeks, Leeds have managed to put together a run of form that has seen them win five of their last six games. There is still a reasonable list of absentees at the club but still, Leeds have managed to keep the pressure on Norwich in first.

As we approach the turn of the year, it’s going to be a crucial time for the club as Bielsa needs to dip into the transfer market to help bolster his squad.  It remains to be seen if the Argentine will be brought in any outfield players but he surely must sign a new goalkeeper following the injury to Jamal Blackman and the at times, inconsistent form of Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

According to The Sun, Leeds are targeting a move for Newcastle United goalkeeper, Karl Darlow.

The Breakdown

Ever since the emergence of Martin Dubravka, Darlow has lost his place in the starting lineup and has since only one appearance for United in the EFL Cup this season.

As it stands, Darlow is currently out with an elbow injury but still could available for a move in January. While Leeds need a goalkeeper to come to either back up Peacock-Farrell or even replace the youngster, Newcastle may not allow him to leave if Freddie Woodman leaves the club.

However, Leeds needs to push for the goalkeeper who could give the club some valuable experience.
