Transfer journalist Dean Jones has been discussing a potential January swoop from Leeds United for their former player Ross Barkley on the latest edition of Touchline Talk.

Reports have suggested the 28-year-old midfielder has the potential to leave Chelsea in January with Everton and Leeds said to be some of the clubs interested in a potential loan deal.
Speaking about Barkley’s future and whether Leeds could prove to be a good fit for the Chelsea man, Jones had the following to say:
“I think Leeds is a good option. You’ve got to look at his style of football as well, what kind of role he’s going to get within the team – this is all going to come into the discussions for Barkley as he looks at this short term until the end of the season, I’d imagine.”
TIF Thoughts on Barkley to Leeds…
The Whites have had their issues in midfield this season with injuries riddling Marcelo Bielsa’s squad as a whole and it has been confirmed recently Kalvin Phillips is expected to be out until March.
And despite the 28-year-old’s issues breaking into the Chelsea side, Barkley is a player with vast Premier League experience and has shown he can hit the ground running with Aston Villa before injury derailed his season.
