Signing Danny Batth is going to provide Leeds with some crucial depth

Signing Danny Batth is going to provide Leeds with some crucial depth

Time is ticking on Leeds’ ability to bring in any more loan deals before tomorrow’s deadline.

So far this summer, Leeds haven’t spent too much in the transfer market with Patrick Bamford and Jack Harrison being the only permanent signings.

Aside from those two, Leeds have brought in three loan player and have also been heavily linked with a move for Izzy Brown.

The attacker would provide crucial depth for Leeds but it also seems that Bielsa is also keen to add another defender and has strongly been linked with skipper Danny Batth according to the Mirror.

The defender is also a target for Sheffield Wednesday who also want to bring him in before the window closes.

The Breakdown

Batth is now surplus to requirements after falling down the pecking order following the permanent signature of Willy Boly, while new signing, Leander Dendoncker has also played further back for the club.

Bielsa has admitted that he would be keen to add another defender if possible and over a long and tough season, having depth in every position is going to be vita for Bielsa.

As it stands, Leeds only have Liam Cooper, Pontus Jansson, Conor Shaughnessy as the only out and out centrebacks to chose from, although Gaetano Berardi has played in the middle and done very well.

An experienced defender, who knows how to play in the Championship, Batth may not be a standout signing but he could be one that could be crucial in Leeds’ promotion push.
