The journey back to the Premier League has been a long and troublesome one for Leeds United. Once Champions League semi-finalists, the Yorkshire club’s unique financial situation in the early 2000’s triggered a spectacular fall from grace, that had them playing in League One under administration less than a decade after their European escapades.
But now, with new owners that have relieved the dictatorial Ken Bates from his duties, and a new manager with promotion experience in Brian McDermott, the view from Elland Road is unusually optimistic ahead of yet another Championship campaign, as Leeds set their sights on returning to the English top flight after a nine year absence.
But the former Reading boss will need some help if he’s going to turn around The Whites’ fortunes over night, and where better to start than the transfer market?
With that in mind, we take a look at the TEN Premier League players, who are interested in taking a step down this summer that could seriously improve Leeds’ promotion chances next season.
