Marcelo Bielsa after former Sunderland man Jermain Lens

They may have not been at their free flowing best but Leeds United have put together a run of two 1-0 wins in their last two games to keep up their hunt of the Championship title. 

The wins mean that Leeds have won four of their last six games and are currently second in the table behind Norwich City.

Thanks to a whole host of injuries, Bielsa has had to dip into the youth academy to supplement his already threadbare squad. If the Argentine wants to keep Leeds in the race for the title, he must look to buy in January.

According to Leeds Live, Leeds are interested in signing Besiktas winger Jermain Lens.

The Breakdown

Besiktas signed the Dutchman from Fenerbahce in 2017 following a season where he scored four goals while also grabbing 12 assists. He hasn’t had the best of times at Besiktas and has failed to score too many goals in the league but he still could prove to be a solid cut-price deal for Leeds.

Lens has experience of English football after playing for Sunderland and might be a player that could provide some depth going forward. His record may not be outstanding but what he does have is the ability to create a goal out of nothing, which is a quality that not many in the Leeds side have.

At 31, his best years are behind him but what he would do is provide cover up front and also on the wing especially as Leeds enter the tough festive period.
