Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has “one or two players” lined up according to Leeds boss Neil Redfearn.
According to the Express, the Leeds boss has “put his trust” in Cellino to find players “capable of hauling the club out of a Championship relegation dogfight” whilst the club are under a transfer embargo after breaking The Football League’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules – meaning they can only sign free u21 players or ‘unestablished’ players that cost under £600,000 per year in wages.
The Leeds boss told the Express:
“We have to be thinking about bringing players in,”
He went onto say:
“Massimo has ideas, one or two players up his sleeve; I’ve put my input in where we need to strengthen. […] We do lack Championship experience, something we have to try and address. We’ve got to look at everything.”
Leeds currently sit in 20th in the Championship after not winning in the league since 29th November. As a result, they sit only one point above the drop zone and need to start turning their fortunes around in order for them to secure a place in English football’s second tier for next season.
