Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as reports claim they are close to a deal for Wolves full back Barry Douglas.
According to Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds have launched a shock move for Douglas.
The report claims Leeds have actually agreed to meeting the Premier League newcomers’ asking price, with a view to complete the move in the next few days.
Fans have been growing increasingly frustrated with the lack of transfer activity, but signing the flying Wolves full back would be a huge boost.
The Scottish international was one of the standout players in Wolves’ run to the title last season, racking up 15 assists, mostly from his incredible set pieces.
Marcelo Bielsa is expected to deploy three at the back this season, so signing one of the league’s best wing backs is a no brainer.
Douglas is in the last 12 months of his contract at Molineux, and Leeds fans are getting excited about the prospect of the Scotsman and Luke Ayling flying down the flanks.

Ayling, Pontus, another quality CB and Douglas. That defence is looking pretty solid tbh. A few more signings of the same calibre as Douglas and we’ll be set for the season!!

Would rather wait this long if this is the quality of player we are bringing in. #lufc

Another quality name being targetted. As frustrating as it has been during preseason to miss out on numerous players for various reasons, the standard of players being linked are much higher than we have seen in recent seasons. The club are showing ambition. That is a positive.
