Kieran Dowell should still be of interest to Leeds United

Kieran Dowell should still be of interest to Leeds United

Leeds United could do with bringing in another midfielder despite having drafted in a number of players over the course of the summer, with the loan window still open.

The Whites managed to secure all three points on the opening day of the Championship campaign against Stoke City, but improvements are still required. One player who has already shone in the Championship and has the potential to succeed once again is Kieran Dowell, who is currently valued at £2.7 million by Transfermarkt, and so perhaps the Whites should consider adding an attack-minded midfielder to their ranks.

The 20-year-old spent last season at the City Ground, making 43 appearances and scoring 10 goals. It was Dowell’s first real taste of competitive football, having previously featured only a handful of times for the Toffees, and his first stint away from his parent club. And, the midfielder will probably be setting his sights on a first-team place in the near future, but for now, another loan spell seems appropriate to help him progress some more.

Interestingly, the youngster has the ability to play as a holding midfielder or he can operate in the final third as a more attack-minded player, with goals and assists ever-present in his game. The Whites currently have Samuel Saiz and Pablo Hernandez who can operate in the attacking midfield role, but if either player makes a rash decision or suffers an injury then it could be curtains for Leeds United’s season.

Leeds have already drafted in a number of players and the summer transfer window has officially shut, but the Yorkshire club are still able to secure the signature of possible loan players up until the deadline on the 31st, so moving for a proven midfielder that has previous experience in the Championship is a no-brainer.

Would Kieran Dowell be a shrewd signing for Leeds United… Let us know!
