Supporters of Leeds United have flocked to a claim that was made by Marcelo Bielsa regarding what the Whites are planning in the January transfer window.

According to a tweet from BBC journalist Adam Pope, Bielsa claimed United “are not looking to bring in another centre-back in the transfer market”.

This is due to the fact that Luke Ayling, Pascal Struijk and Kalvin Phillips have all ‘successfully adapted‘ to the role.

The claim from the Elland Road club’s Argentine manager comes after it was announced that Robin Koch was having knee surgery after aggravating an injury in the 3-1 defeat against Chelsea (per BBC).

After the tweet was shared by Pope, lots of Leeds fans flocked to it to air their responses.
