Leeds fans on Twitter are disappointed that the club didn’t sign a centre-back on deadline day

Leeds United fans were treated to an incredible start to the season last weekend as Marcelo Bielsa’s side shocked Stoke and ran out 3-1 winners at Elland Road. However, after the transfer window shut on Thursday the fans on Twitter were disappointed that the club hadn’t brought in a new centre-back on a permanent deal.

Liam Cooper and full-back Gaetano Berardi started at the heart of the back four in the win over Leeds and look set to be Bielsa’s first choice partnership going forward, with Swedish international Pontus Jansson and academy graduate Conor Shaughnessy as the current back-up.

However, Leeds fans will now have to rely on the loan window, which remains open for EFL clubs until August 31, to secure a quality defender. According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, the West Yorkshire side are interested in re-signing Matthew Pennington who spent last season on loan at Elland Road from Everton, however this doesn’t seem to be a popular deal with the fans.
