Leeds legend Eddie Gray has insisted that the club are not in trouble this season, despite a very quiet end to the transfer window.

The Whites have lost stars Max Gradel, Mike Grella and Federico Bessone over the summer, and whilst the club have made eight signings during the window, pundits have argued that they may not have bolstered their squad enough to gain promotion into the Barclays Premier League.

But Gray believes that spending big is not always the way to make a club better, with Leeds concentrating on building strength and depth in what they’ve got.

"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,” Gray said.


 

"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."

Leeds finished seventh in the Npower Championship last term, missing out on the play-offs by the narrowest of margins. The club will be hoping to at least make the top six this term, and move back into the Barclays Premier League for the first time since 2004.
