Premier League club Leeds United have already started making a list of the players they would like to sign in the summer and it is already looking like an interesting list even though there has not been any major transfer bid for any player yet. Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa is currently happy with his squad but when asked if the club would engage in any transfer business this summer, he said they would only be signing players he feels they need and will help the team.
The Elland Road club have been very impressive this current campaign, their first in the English Premier League in over a decade. Although there have been a couple of bad moments for them, they have had to cope with the pressure, pace, and intensity of the top division, which is slightly different from what they have in the Championship, the division they played in last season.
Leeds United are reportedly keen on signing West Brom midfielder Conor Gallagher in the summer. This is according to the publication from the stables of popular media platform Team Talk.
Gallagher is a Chelsea player who has spent the season on loan at struggling West Brom. Gallagher and West Brom have battled relegation from the Premier League for the majority of the season.Gallagher signed for the Baggies on loan from West London giants Chelsea on loan for the entire duration of this season.
Crystal Palace and Leeds United youth teams will lock horns in their Premier League 2 clash and it’s expected to be an interesting game for many reasons. Leeds United U23 boss Mark Jackson will take his players on a trip to Crystal Palace where they will be looking to seal their 10th win on the bounce.
The Whites are on a 9-game winning streak that has started since mid-November last year and they have been very scintillating since then. Their spectacular form has also seen them establish a mammoth 10-point gap at the top of the Premier League 2 table.
Marcelo Bielsa and his Leeds United side will be tested at home as they prepare to welcome Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton at Elland Road. The two teams will lock horns in their Premier League clash on Wednesday evening with both teams aiming to gun for victory over each other.
The home side will be heading into this fixture beaming with confidence as they are coming on the back of a remarkable 3-1 victory over Leicester City away from home at the Kings Power Stadium. Stuart Dallas, Patrick Bamford, and Jack Harrison were among the goals as a charged Leeds side came back from behind and ensured they downed the Foxes who faltered at home. (more…)
Chelsea defender FikayoTomori has been frozen out of the first team picture at the club this season and the Nigerian-born England international is said to be keen to leave the West London giants in this January transfer market. Premier League newcomers Leeds United are interested in signing Tomori as manager Marcelo Bielsa looks for cover in central defence due to the injury to new signing Robin Koch. German defender Koch is not expected back anytime soon after he underwent surgery on the knee that he injured last month. The Leeds United player was ruled out for three months in the aftermath of his surgery.
The interest of Leeds United in FikayoTomori was reported by the BBC and he could be the man to solve the defensive issues at Elland Road. Leeds United are one of the most entertaining teams in the Premier League but they also ship a lot of goals. Leeds United have one of the worst defence in the division after conceding 33 goals in just 17 league games. In the last one month, Leeds United have been on the receiving end of heavy league defeats to Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. Leeds United were handed a 6-2 away defeat at rivals Manchester United and a 3-0 away loss at Spurs. The league newcomers also delivered heavy Premier League defeats to the duo of West Brom and Newcastle United during the said period. Leeds United thumped the Baggies 5-0 away from home and also scored five goals against the Magpies in a 5-2 victory at home.
Premier League newcomers Leeds United have been backed to return to winning ways at home ahead of the visit of London team West Ham United. Leeds United were tipped to beat the Hammers by former Liverpool player Mark Lawrenson who’s now a pundit with BBC Sports. He expects Leeds United to end their four-match winless run at home in the league when Marcelo Bielsa’s men play hosts to West Ham United at Elland Road on Friday night in the first match of week twelve games in the Premier League.
Leeds United have won just one of their five home games in the league on their return to the English topflight. The solitarywin came during their first home game back in the Premier League in September. Leeds United beat fellow newcomers Fulham 4-3 in that game played on the second weekend of the season. Since that week two clash with the Cottagers, Leeds United have drawn two and lost two games at home. (more…)
