Journalist Dean Jones has claimed that Leeds United could be set for a summer transfer window worthy of getting excited over.
Leeds have struggled this season, and they currently find themselves in a difficult situation in the Premier League, as they sit in the bottom three and Burnley have a chance to extend the gap at the bottom to three points if they win their game in hand.
The Whites failed to sign anyone in the January transfer window, despite attempting to sign American midfielder Brenden Aaronson from RB Salzburg.
Whilst speaking with GiveMeSport, Jones claimed that Leeds could be set for a big summer transfer window but it is important that they remain in the Premier League.
“I know they have got other ambitions, like some of the players that are on their long-term list, thinking they were going to stay in the Premier League, were big names.
“So, I think there is a possibility that Leeds fans could yet get excited about the club really going for it if they do stay up,” Jones said.
Do you think Leeds will remain in the Premier League?
TIF Thoughts on Dean Jones’s comments…
So, if what Jones says is correct then there may now be even more pressure on staying up with the thought of exciting signings being something that will have Leeds fans intrigued.
Jesse Marsch was brought into Leeds to attempt to save them from relegation to the Championship, just two seasons after they were promoted, and after a string of good results, when they went on a five game unbeaten run, it looked like they would be safe, but recent results from Everton and Burnley, as well as losing their last three games, has made things difficult for the American coach.
The ambitions for Marsch will be to remain in the top flight because this will mean that they can attract players to come and join the club, as well as potentially keep the likes of Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha.
