Report: Leeds United among clubs keen on Premier League outcast this summer

Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be looking to make a number of additions this summer and will want the club to be active in making it happen.

The Whites are currently facing a cloud of uncertainty this summer, with Paul Heckingbottom’s future already up for debate, despite only taking charge in February. A number of the locals have called for him to be replaced as he only managed to win a quarter of his matches since being in charge.

However, it is believed he could remain in charge of the Elland Road outfit for the beginning of the season and the punters will want to see some improvements with players being signed in the transfer window.

One position that has been talked about a lot recently is the goalkeeper, with Felix Weidwald and Andy Lonergan not expected to be at the club, and the Newcastle Chronicle have made a suggestion the club could target Karl Darlow of Newcastle United.

It is thought he could cost the club around £2million to sign, and as he is deemed surplus to requirements at the Toon, he could be considered a great buy for the Championship outfit.

Landlord’s Verdict

Leeds need to find a new goalkeeper and rather quickly if they are to have any hopes of qualifying for the Premier League next season, as Weidwald and Lonergan have both been rather unreliable in between the sticks.

Darlow, who played for Nottingham Forest before joining the Magpies, has experience of the division and would be considered a great buy at a small price. The ‘keeper could also be given first-team football, despite the rise of Bailey Peacock-Farrell, which would be an attractive offer for the 27-year-old.

Leeds fans in the Tavern will be expecting movements to be made and they will be happy if they can bring a man of his experience on board this summer.
