Leeds United hasn’t had their first string team available to play most of the matches in the on-going season. A lot of their players have sustained injuries and the head coach Marcelo Biesla has had to put his second choice players on the park, but that hasn’t reflected on the team’s performance at all.
Tottenham Hotspur legend Ledley King believes Leeds United are strong favourites to return to the Premier League, should they maintain their form through the festive period. The west Yorkshire outfit have transformed themselves into frontrunners for promotion under Marcelo Bielsa and they were temporarily at the top of the standings over the weekend before Norwich City leapfrogged them to the summit.
Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay does not believe Leeds United will make an approach to sign Robert Huth on a free transfer. The German has been without a club since being released from his Leicester City contract last summer and he recently suggested that he would be open to the prospect of playing for Marco Bielsa’s team.

However, speaking to the Inside Elland Road podcast, Hay has claimed that there is no chance of Huth making the switch to Yorkshire as he does not fit into the scheme of things under Bielsa, he said: “I have looked into this and from what I’ve been told there is no chance of him coming to Leeds, although he was angling for it.
Michael O’Neill, the manager of Northern Ireland describes Bailey Peacock-Farrell of Leeds United as “confident and assured” following the young full competitive international debut of goalkeeper. Whites no 1 Peacock-Farrell got its first competitive start for Northern Ireland in the UEFA Nations League hosting of Bosnia on Saturday afternoon, who made a 2-1 win at Windsor Park.
Elland Road, who perhaps had been heaving and seething like none other championships indeed positively revealed and got hopeful during the success of one promotion and the uneasiness of the other one. All the fans sporting home shirts similar to a man it seemed, they even ensured that atmosphere would be white hot even more than what stoke could have handled in a day. The newcomers who were champions were in fact be half-a-yard behind their current hosts and had to pay the price with a score line that reflects their opening salvo at their current level.
Leeds United have reached an agreement with the Frenchman Toumani Diagouraga to terminate his contract. Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Phil Hay on Thursday confirmed through his personal Twitter account on Thursday that the “deal is done” for Diagouraga, to put an end to his one-and-a-half year stay at Elland Road.
