Three reasons Scott Malone would solve Leeds United’s left-back issue

According to reports on ClubCall, Leeds United are interested in signing out-of-favour Huddersfield Town left-back Scott Malone on loan during the January transfer window.

The 26-year-old only joined the newly-promoted Premier League club from Fulham in the summer, but he has found first team opportunities hard to come by and ClubCall suggests that he could be moved out on loan to get some more regular game time under his belt.

While he started both of the Terriers’ EFL Cup fixtures this term, the full-back has only featured for 56 minutes across two appearances in the top flight, including 29 minutes in the 4-0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at the John Smith’s Stadium before the international break.

Meanwhile, Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen has already used players like Vurnon Anita, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Gaetano Berardi in the left-back position this season, but he still seems to be unsure of who is the best option there and that is something that he could look to rectify in the New Year.
