Leeds should hijack Middlesbrough’s deal for Bolasie before it’s too late

Leeds should hijack Middlesbrough’s deal for Bolasie before it’s too late

The loan window for English Football League clubs is still open and Leeds could well make a move before the deadline this month.

The Yorkshire club have got off to a great start this season under Bielsa, having won four games out of four – three in the league – with Samu Saiz and Kemar Roofe leading the way

While it was unsure how quickly the players would adapt to Bielsa’s style of play and coaching, the early signs seem pretty good.

Without having to bring in too many players, the Argentinian manager has improved the team massively.

The Championship is a long and hard league, however, and considering Bielsa’s high energy style of play, the club will need a host of players to step in at some point this season.

On the flanks, Pablo Hernandez and Ezgjan Alioski have been brilliant but one man Leeds should target for a loan move, is Everton winger Yannick Bolasie who is apparently close to a move to Championship rivals, Middlesbrough, according to the Teeside Gazette. 

While it seems that the deal is very close between the two clubs, Leeds should attempt to hijack the deal. He may have an expensive Premier League salary but Bolasie’s pace and trickery could be a great asset for Leeds.

Before his injury, Bolasie had been a key man for Crystal Palace and arguably one of the better wingers in the league.

If Bielsa can hijack this deal, Leeds will have pulled off a coup.

What do you think Leeds fans?
