Leeds United tipped to sign multiple players by former star


Leeds United have enjoyed an excellent summer so far.

After securing promotion last term the Whites have immediately clicked into gear as they look to adapt to life in the top flight.

Despite winning the Championship by 10 points, Leeds know that they simply cannot get complacent if they're to survive in the Premier League.

Victor Orta and his recruitment team have been working hard to bring in some new faces as they build for the future.

Robin Koch and Rodrigo have both been signed as immediate first team stars, while the likes of Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood have been added with a view to the future.

But Leeds are far from done yet.

Plenty of names are still being linked with a move to Elland Road as Marcelo Bielsa looks to make his squad Premier League ready.

While no deals are thought to be imminent, former Leeds striker Noel Whelan believes that the club still needs another four players.


Speaking to Football Insider, Whelan said: “I think we’ve got a decent squad, I think the signings have been fantastic, I do think we need more signings in certain positions.

“I think we need another centre-forward, I feel we still need another centre-half and I do still feel we need another midfield player – if there’s a bit of money left over then a bit more of an experienced goalkeeper.

“Straight there again, you’re looking at another three or four in my opinion. The transfer window’s open for quite a while, I’m sure the club are working hard to bring a few more bodies.

“I do feel goals are going to win you games and having a centre-forward, or competition in those positions, is a must.

“I don’t think the transfers are finished right now, I still think there may possibly be a couple that come through the door at Elland Road.”


GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

Leeds United supporters are loving life this summer.

The club are still on cloud nine after securing promotion and they're certainly taking that good feeling into the transfer market.

If the Whites can sign three or four new players then there's every opportunity that Leeds will have a really good season.

Expectations are probably a little bit too high around Elland Road with many tipping them to really excel this term.

But surely it's just a case of avoiding relegation this term.
