After a transfer window where Leeds have shelled out over £3.5m on two players in Chris Wood and Stuart Dallas, Leeds United Executive Director Adam Pearson has refused to rule out further transfers coming into West Yorkshire.
After the £1.25M signing of Stuart Dallas from Brentford, Leeds United let Steve Morison go to Millwall, clearing some money from the wage bill, meaing the club would be a reported £20,000 a week better off. Leeds have also cashed in on the sale of Max Gradel to Bournemouth, receiving £500,000 as a result of a negotiated clause in his contract. As reported in The72 earlier today, Leeds could be set to receive 10% from the sale of Danny Rose from Tottenham. See link below.
Pearson told the Yorkshire Evening Post, ‘There’s possibly one more to come in, 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’
I would be surprised if any new names came into the squad before the season opener, against Burnley at Elland Road, but that doesn’t mean that there won’t be any new faces before the transfer window closes at the end of August. It’s suddenly a good feeling to have being a Leeds United fan.
