‘Don’t be surprised’ – Reporter shares Leeds transfer plans ahead of D-Day

Leeds United may not see any transfers in or out before Monday’s transfer window deadline, according to journalist Graham Smyth.

Los Blancos have been linked with the moves of Brenden Aaronson from Salzburg and Takumi Minamino from Liverpool [Sky Sports] before the window closes on Monday evening.

But with no deals about to be done to see the players arrive at Elland Road, it could also have an impact on players leaving and could mean no deals are done by the deadline.

According to Graham Smyth of the Yorkshire Evening Post, talks around a move for Minamino are likely given the current loan situation surrounding Crysencio Summerville.

But with the 20-year-old winger currently “unlikely” to leave before the window closes, Smyth said “don’t be surprised if there are no ins and outs” in a tweet on his personal account.

Cut

The news that Leeds may not make any additions to their squad is a blow in their fight against relegation this season.

While they no doubt already have the quality in the team to survive, the number of injury issues they have had this season is worrying.

If this trend continues throughout the season, without any reinforcements, Bielsa will be forced to rely on the youngsters to get his team out of all difficult situations.

As for the lack of outings, it’s not ideal for the progression of youngsters like Summerville who need regular minutes to help them improve and develop.

At this point, it’s the team and the club that have to come first, so that’s it for the next six months, unless Victor Orta can pull a rabbit out of the hat from here. Monday evening.
