Leeds United fans have urged their club to spend in the January transfer window.
Head coach Marcelo Bielsa, speaking ahead of Saturday’s Championship clash with West Bromwich Albion, admitted that it would be difficult for Leeds to bring new players to the club in early 2019.
Indeed, in quotes carried by the Yorkshire Evening Post, Bielsa played down suggestions that the Whites would be active in the next window.
The Leeds fans have been reacting to Bielsa’s words on social media, and many are still hopeful that their club will improve the squad.
It is shaping up to be a fascinating race for the Championship title this season, and Leeds currently sit top of the division on 30 points, ahead of second-placed Norwich City on goal difference.
The Whites will travel to a West Brom side this weekend who will also have hopes of securing a return to the Premier League.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Leeds fans, in relation to Bielsa’s quotes on transfers, can be seen below:
Think we really need to add to this squad in January, we struggle when we have loads of injuries. Need cover in a lot of areas, otherwise think we’ll struggle

Heard this every January since the Ken Bates days, was hoping this season would be a bit different. The championship is wide open this season, we’ve an outstanding chance, come April I hope we’ve no regrets.

Other teams will add more quality to their squads that’s the problem.
