Leeds United journalist Phil Hay has been sharing his thoughts on the Yorkshire club’s season in the Premier League so far and what the upcoming summer transfer window could hold for the Elland Road side.
This comes after Hay recently co-hosted the latest episode of The Phil Hay Show where he spoke about a number of topics concerning Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
On the subject of the current situation at Leeds and the upcoming summer transfer window, Hay had this to say on the matter. (5.36)
He said: “I think they’re really close to doing what they needed to do, which was just to settle in, to find their feet and to improve and move forward from the team that they were last season and I think more than anything, they’re setting themselves up brilliantly for the summer window when I think it should be easy to attract players and it should be easy to convince players that this is something that you want to get involved in and also that it’s not a project that’s kind of running out of steam, on the contrary, it feels to me like it’s got the potential to get to get significantly better.”
After securing their place in the Premier League after a 16-year absence at the end of last season, Leeds currently find themselves sat in 10th place in the league table after winning 11, drawing two and losing 12 of their 25 played league games so far.
TIF Thoughts on Phil Hay’s comments on Leeds and the upcoming summer transfer window…
Given how Leeds have had a reasonably successful first season back in the Premier League by the fact that they are not currently near the relegation zone, if they finish in the top half by the end of the season, they could convince any potential incoming signings to join the club if the club has aspirations of reaching the European places.
Have you been satisfied with Leeds' season in the Premier League so far?
Moving forward, Bielsa and everyone at the club will be hoping to finish as far up the table as possible before they start to think about potentially making moves in the transfer market.
Given how busy they were during the previous summer window to try and make their mark in the Premier League this season, it will be interesting to see what business they do this summer to progress further.
