According to a recent Football FanCast poll, the majority of Leeds fans would back a January loan move for Liverpool youngster Adam Lewis in order to provide cover for Marcelo Bielsa’s injury-hit defence.
With full-back Luke Ayling ruled out for two months with a knee injury, Stuart Dallas was asked to fill the right wing-back role in the win over Wigan on Sunday, and although the Northern Irishman certainly stepped up to the plate this clearly showed the lack of depth in the Leeds squad.
However, although Bielsa likes to work with a small group it would seem that Leeds fans are keen to have more cover in their squad, and 60 per cent said they should move for Liverpool’s young prospect Lewis, whose presence in the squad would surely push Barry Douglas to be even better.
Goal recently reported that Liverpool’s current back-up at left-back Alberto Moreno would not be given a new contract, allowing him to leave on a free-transfer in the summer of 2019. The Spaniard lost his place to Andrew Robertson last season and in truth has struggled since arriving at Anfield in the summer of 2014.
The report also claimed that Jurgen Klopp has been impressed by 18-year-old Lewis in training, and that he will become the understudy to Robertson next season, so a move now to gain some first-team action would surely benefit all parties.
