Leeds legend Eddie Gray believes the club's quiet transfer window will not hinder their promotion aspirations.
The Whites lost last season's player of the year Max Gradel to St Etienne and released Mike Grella and Federico Bessone while other clubs in the division spent large sums to capture Premier League players.
Gray told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "Clubs like West Ham and Leicester have spent the money and time will tell us if it's the right policy. The loan market is going to be important for us."
He added: "I think, obviously, there's going to be a lot of Leeds fans disappointed that we never went into the market in a big way.
"But that's the way it is just now.
"We've signed plenty of players in the last few seasons and just because you don't go and spend a lot of money, it doesn't mean you're not going to get decent players at the club."
