Leeds transfers: Done deals, who could sign and leave in the January transfer window?

Leeds: Bielsa reacts to 'efficient' 5-0 win over West Brom

Leeds United have had a decent start to life in the Premier League this season, and don’t appear to be in any danger of relegation at the halfway stage. Will Marcelo Bielsa be tempted to dip into the transfer market and push for a European spot in the league table?

Leeds sit happily in mid-table at the start of the January transfer window.

Bielsa’s side have entertained the top flight with some thrilling ties throughout the campaign.

The Whites stunned Newcastle United in a 5-2 victory last month, but were also on the receiving end of a 6-2 defeat to Manchester United.

With a particularly congested Premier League table, Leeds still have a chance of sealing a Europa League place for next season, but will dipping into the transfer market boost their chances?

“Our team gives a great importance to the offensive game,” said Bielsa, at the end of 2020.

“The club has made important investments to improve our offensive game, by incorporating Raphinha and Rodrigo.

“We’ve managed to keep Helder Costa and Jack Harrison, also Patrick Bamford is scoring regularly.

“The club has also invested in the defensive part, which is also needed to attack. They’re important investments which allow the team to grow.”
