David Norris believes Leeds United may have missed out on transfer targets because of the extensive wait for Marcelo Bielsa to sign a new deal.
Head coach Bielsa penned a fresh one-year contract just a matter of days before the new Premier League campaign got underway.
Would Leeds have signed more players if Bielsa had penned a new deal sooner?
Jack Harrison has also completed a permanent move to Elland Road after a succession of successful loan spells.
Former Whites midfielder Norris believes waiting to sign fresh terms has backfired for Bielsa in the transfer market.
He told TIF: “When it comes to signing players, they move for the manager quite a lot of the time. The manager will be the one that sells it to them.
“They might have even lost out on three or four players because of not knowing what is going on with Bielsa.”
