Championship

Hay reveals latest details surrounding possible transfer

Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be hoping the side can get some players through the door before the end of the window now that Marcelo Bielsa has been appointed.

The 62-year-old was named as the new manager of the Whites last week and is expected to bring in a number of faces to help strengthen his side as he looks to take them back into the Premier League.

The Argentine will know that it will not be easy and will be looking to find players with experience of playing in the Championship, with the goalkeeper position seemingly a priority.

The Elland Road outfit have looked at the possibility of signing David Stockdale, as he is free to leave Birmingham City, and Phil Hay has provided the locals with a crucial update.

The Yorkshire Evening Post journalist has stated on his Twitter account that a discussion is still underway for the shot-stopper, however, Leeds are wanting to take him on a season-long loan rather than permanently to begin with, which the Blues seem reluctant to.

He has also stated that Leeds are not prepared to wait too much longer about a deal, presumably in case they miss out on other options should a move not happen.

Landlord’s Verdict

The Leeds fans in the Tavern will be hoping they can get a deal done for Stockdale as he has a huge amount of experience in the Championship and has tasted success of being promoted to the Premier League.

The ‘keeper would also prove to be valuable to the likes of Bailey Peacock-Farrell and his development and that would only go down well with the residents in the bar.

Leeds fans – thoughts?
