Football journalist Gerard Brand has made a claim on Leeds United and their potential future transfer business.
This comes after Brand recently made an appearance on The Sky Sports Football Podcast where he spoke about a number of topics concerning Premier League clubs.
On the topic of Marcelo Bielsa’s side and how their season has gone so far, Brand had this to say.
He said: “My concern with Leeds has always been the future. Is Patrick Bamford a Premier League striker? Can he play against tight defences?
“Their transfer movement, it’s going to be really intriguing in the future, because these Bielsa players, they have specific traits.
“They’ve more or less got the same team from two years ago in the Championship. What I’m really surprised at as well is how little Leeds players get linked away from the club, and I think that might change in the summer, so going forward, I think their transfer policy is going to be really interesting but overall a very, very good season so far for Leeds.”
Prior to their midweek league clash against Newcastle United, the Yorkshire club sit in 12th place in the Premier League table, winning seven, drawing two and losing nine of their 18 matches so far this season.
TIF Thoughts on Gerard Brand’s comments on Leeds…
Considering how Leeds didn’t sell any of their players on permanent deals during the previous summer transfer window but spent a total sum of £96.1 million on bringing new players in, there’s every possibility that the club could be active once again in the next summer transfer window.
Do you think Leeds will buy and sell players in summer?
In our view, the transfer business the club does in summer will be dependent on the league position that Leeds end up in by the end of this current campaign, so it seems fair to suggest the future is indeed uncertain, while there is certainly logic to Brand’s claim that the Whites may struggle to survive if the squad that got promoted from the Championship sticks together for much longer in the top flight.
