Leeds United have had a busy window for a club saying that they weren’t intending to be busy, the Whites brining in five players to the club. Now Sun journalist Alan Nixon (tweet – below) says they are still watching other targets.
As well as Yosuke Ideguchi and Laurens De Bock, the latter an immediate first-team starter, the Whites have brought in rated youngsters such as Oliver Sarkic, Aapo Halme and Kamil Miazek for the Under-23 set-up.
That hasn’t stopped the Whites looking for more with head coach Thomas Christiansen saying yesterday that the club are actively involved with sourcing other players.
James Justin, to give him his correct name, is an 18-year-old right-back at Luton, a youngster who has come through the ranks at the Bedfordshire club. He has featured in 10 Sky Bet League Two games for the Hatters, gaining 504 minutes of game time and scoring two goals.
The youngster made his Luton Town début as a 16-year-old, coming on for a seven-minute cameo appearance in Luton’s final game of the 2015/16 season – a 4-1 win against Exeter City. Last season the youngster featured 29 times for the Hatters, scoring once and providing two assists across what must be seen as a successful début season at Kenilworth Road.
Currently Leeds United have regular right-back Luke Ayling out for the season, talented right-back Lewie Coyle on loan at Fleetwood Town. Popular full-back Gaetano Berardi has slipped over from the left to cover Ayling’s injury absence, but maybe Leeds are looking for longer term solutions.
This could prompt why Nixon (above) sees James as “a target” yet “maybe not this window all the same.”
