Leeds United executive Adam Pearson has hinted that there could be two new faces in the squad soon following the arrival of Stuart Dallas from Brentford, the Yorkshire Evening Post reports.

The Whites have been busy this transfer window, seven new faces have joined Uwe Rosler’s side and strikers Billy Sharp and Steve Morison have recently move to other clubs. Despite this, Pearson hinted that more transfers could still be on the way.

Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Pearson said that “There’s possibly one more to come and maybe a loan deal as well, just to give us a bit of strength in the centre of midfield.

“We’re still looking. Whether that’s a wide player or not remains to be seen.”

Leeds will be without midfielders Luke Murphy and Tomasso Bianchi for the start of the new season, they both miss out through injury and it leaves Leeds short of two first-team midfield candidates.

The arrival of Stuart Dallas filled the left-wing role that was open in the squad, meaning Leeds can line up comfortably in Rosler’s preferred 4-3-3 formation this season. The problem The Whites face is that they are short of options out-wide and will need to rely on Dallas and Sam Byram to stay fit and available throughout the campaign.

Leeds have previously looked at signing Brandon Barker, Raphael Martinho and Will Buckley but it is believed that they will not go back and try to re-sign those targets.

  1. I’m very happy with the new signings, but I in my view, Leeds should sign another central defender and maybe a central midfielder or wide player. The midfield does look very young and may need an old head, like Joey Barton or any other experienced midfielder.
