Leeds United supporters would quite like their beloved Whites side to face Norwich City every week at the minute.

Having dumped the Canaries out of the EFL Cup while also beating them 2-3 at Carrow Road recently, Garry Monk’s side have gained some revenge for the sales of Jonny Howson, Luciano Becchio and Robert Snodgrass down the years.

Sitting in the playoff places in sixth place in the Championship right now, Whites fans won’t want to get too carried away given the club have become used to so much disappointment over the past 12 years.

However, there are signs of optimism at Elland Road with Massimo Cellino having finally got his hands on a clearly talented manager in Garry Monk over the summer with consistency in results now starting to occur.

With Leeds United going well right now, some shrewd January transfer window signings could be just the shot in the arm the club needs to mount a real push for the Premier League in the second half of the season.

Summer signings such as Kyle Bartley and Pontus Jansson have improved the Whites’ back line and some further smart moves in the New Year might be just the tonic.

With that in mind, here are FIVE players who Leeds United should be targeting in the New Year.
