Leeds should sign Marcus Maddison before Championship rivals do

Leeds have started the season incredibly well and look like one of the best teams in the Championship, if not the best.

With Kemar Roofe up front and Samuel Saiz as the 10, Leeds’ brand of attacking football has been great to watch.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men have already dismantled both Derby and Stoke and will host Rotherham on Saturday.

So far Bielsa hasn’t made too many moves this summer but a player that could add even more quality to his midfield, is Peterborough midfielder, Marcus Maddison.

The club had been linked with a move for Maddison earlier in the window, although he had also been linked with Reading and West Brom.

According to the Peterborough Telegraph via Birmingham Live, Maddison will leave the club this window and Leeds should be looking to bring him to Yorkshire.

The Breakdown

In tandem with now Derby striker, Jack Marriot, Marcus Maddison was one of the best players in League One last year.

Capable of playing as an attacking midfielder and as a winger, Maddison scored eight goals last season to go along with 18 assists.

If Leeds could bring him in, his versatility could prove to be vital for club’s season.

Samu Saiz, Pablo Hernandez and Ezgjan Alioski have all been superb so far this year but outside of Jack Harrison or Stuart Dallas, there isn’t much in terms of quality depth.

While he’s attracted interest from a host of clubs, Leeds should hijack any deal for him as he could be a star for Bielsa in the long run.
