Finally it would seem there is some sort of movement on a goalkeeper coming into Leeds United. It may only be the tenth of the month but we’ve known we need a keeper for around two months now.
Young goalkeeper Baily Peacock-Farrell is the only senior player in that position, he himself an under 23 player for most of last season. The Northern Ireland international has come in for some very heavy criticism of late, something that his performances probably highlight. Jamal Blackman, a Chelsea loanee broke his leg in an under 23 fixture and returned to his parent club, leaving Will Huffer as the second choice. The youngster played one game when both were out injured and did perform well, but certainly isn’t ready for the run-in if something goes wrong.
no, won’t be Forster but they will get a keeper. That’s the one they’ve been working on this week

Marcelo Bielsa will know that this team needs players in despite him playing it down in the media. A winger is on the agenda and deep down the club will be hoping for more. Pablo Hernandez and Barry Douglas are the latest players to pick up injuries and Kemar Roofe and Pontus Jansson did have issues but will be fit for tomorrow nights game against Derby County at Elland Road.
Fraser Forster was linked with the club today with Southampton willing to let him leave the club but Phil Hay has confirmed he won’t be coming to Leeds United. Whether or not the club will buy or loan a keeper remains to be seen but given the amount of money Andrea Radrizzani has made in player sales since he took over you would like to think he’s willing to spend money.
