Leeds United: Insider drops summer transfer claim

Leeds United have two massive games left to play this season as Jesse Marsch aims to keep his side in the Premier League and put an end to what has been a difficult campaign for the Yorkshire club.

Tomorrow sees the Whites take on Brighton & Hove Albion at Elland Road before they travel to Brentford for their final clash of the season.

With Leeds in the relegation zone as things stand, but level on points with Burnley and only two behind Everton, the Whites will be looking to win both of their remaining matches and hope that will be enough to see them avoid the drop.

Despite this crucial period for the club, it seems as though a clue has emerged regarding the upcoming summer transfer window and what avoiding relegation could do for them when it comes to their potential business.

What’s the talk?

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, journalist and transfer insider Dean Jones was discussing the summer transfer window and what sort of business Leeds could do if they avoid relegation.

He said: “I know they have got other ambitions, like some of the players that are on their long-term list, thinking they were going to stay in the Premier League, were big names.

“So, I think there is a possibility that Leeds fans could yet get excited about the club really going for it if they do stay up.”

He is currently the club-record signing...

Taking this into account, not only would it undoubtedly delight the Leeds supporters to see their team stay up, but it could also excite a lot of them to think that the club would then look to sign some “big names” in the summer.

In terms of what area of the squad the Whites should look to strengthen in the summer if they do keep their place in the top flight, the first priority should be their defence.

Do Leeds need a transfer overhaul in the summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With 36 Premier League games played, Marsch’s side have conceded 77 goals in total, leaving only bottom club Norwich City with a worse defensive record.

Before the summer transfer window opens, the focus should fully be on what the players do on the pitch for their final couple of games this season, before the club then spring into action behind the scenes and dive into the transfer market.
