Leeds watched Ronan Curtis in action for Portsmouth

Leeds United will likely head into the January transfer window looking to strengthen their side in order to achieve their aims of winning promotion to the Premier League.

The Whites currently sit in second in the Championship so far, however, a number of injuries has depleted Marcelo Bielsa’s squad, leaving them even thinner than they already were in certain areas.

And, according to a report by TEAMtalk, it appears the Elland Road outfit have a certain League One player on their radar.

It is understood that Leeds have sent scouts to watch Ronan Curtis in action for Portsmouth as he lights up their own promotion efforts.

The winger, who can play anywhere along the front line or in midfield, has been in prolific form for Pompey, having netted six goals and created a further five in his 13 matches so far, which has earned him an international call-up to the Republic of Ireland setup.

The Verdict:

Curtis has been in fine form this season, having only arrived at Fratton Park in the summer transfer window, which has led to Portsmouth bracing for January offers.

Leeds could look to make an offer for the player, who is 22-years-old, and would certainly look to challenge the likes of Samu Saiz, Ezgjan Alioski and Pablo Hernandez for a place in the team should he join.

As stated, Bielsa will likely head into the January transfer market, although it remains to be seen if they will look to add Curtis or look at other areas of the field as a priority for new recruits, such as the defence.
