Loan deal for Everton midfielder Muhamed Besic would be a great move from Leeds

Although the permanent transfer window has now closed, the loan window for English Football League clubs is still open until the end of this month.

Before the transfer window deadline, Leeds had only brought in five players to strengthen Marcelo Bielsa’s squad.

With that in mind, the club may want to dip into the loan market to see if they can bring in a few more additions.

According to The Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds are interested in taking Everton midfielder, Muhamed Besic on loan for the season.

The report stated that Leeds wanted to wait until after the closure of the transfer window to then sign him on loan.

The Breakdown

The talented midfielder spent the second-half of last season on loan at Middlesbrough last year but following Everton’s flurry of signings, Leeds may now find much easier to bring Besic in.

After a fairly impressive debut season with Everton, Besic has found it hard to replicate that form due to a knee ligament injury.

A deep-lying playmaker, Besic is a very underrated player and was an important part of the Middlesbrough team that made it to the playoffs.

Moreover, with the departure of Ronaldo Vieira, Leeds are missing that player who can play passed from deep.

Kalvin Phillips played that role for the Yorkshire club at the weekend but if Leeds can lure Besic to Bielsa’s side, they would be getting a classy midfielder who could potentially propel them towards Premier League promotion.

So Leeds fans, what do you think about this? Let us know!
