Leeds United fans are clearly hoping to see their club bring in a new centre-back before the summer transfer window closes on August 9, and Whites fans on Twitter want to swoop for Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas, rated at £4.5m by Transfermarkt.
The Czech Republic international returned to Stamford Bridge at the end of last season following a successful loan spell with Fulham, whom he helped win promotion to the Premier League following a play-off final win against Aston Villa.
Meanwhile, the Yorkshire outfit only have Pontus Jansson, Liam Cooper and Conor Shaughnessy as their only senior and specialist options at the heart of the defence, and they have already done business with Chelsea on two occasions this summer with loan deals for Lewis Baker and Jamal Blackman.

Leeds supporters, some of whom have been debating a potential move for another Manchester City man following Jack Harrison’s arrival, have been quick to have their say on potentially signing Kalas via social media, and while one said “Tomas Kalas would be an unreal signing”, another described him as a “Rolls Royce defender”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
We need a CB, whether on loan or perm (prefer perm) we should look no further than Tomas Kalas. Won promo with Boro & Fulham, class and will be available.

I have seen Kalas play more and he is a bit of a Rolls Royce defender for me.
So I would choose him.
Quick, string and good in the air.
