Leeds United are said to be in the market for temporary options & with lots of speculation around the Leeds dressing room, we should expect some departure on loan (considering decreasing play-time for some starlets) while considering the financial impact of the current unprecedented situation, also welcome new players on loan.
Tyler Roberts could be one of the Leeds players to go out on loan with Championship clubs like Bournemouth and Derby County who have come looking for him after a frustrating start in the Premier League, having only eight League appearances this season (starting only two). The attacking midfielder was one of the key players to help Leeds gain promotion having made twenty-three appearances while scoring five.
Due to a coronavirus outbreak at Derby County, their training facilities have been shut temporarily as the first time squad has been told to isolate themselves while Derby will play their FA Cup fixture with U23’s and U18’s. Therefore a move in the coming few weeks to Derby for Tyler Roberts could be difficult.
Fikayo Tomori could be one of the players to arrive at Elland Road from Chelsea. The 23-year-old defender has played only once in the Premier League this season as Frank Lampard prefers the pairing of Silva-Zouma & Rudiger-Christensen at centre- back.
With Robin Koch likely to return in March, while Liam Cooper could be back by the end of January, and Diego Llorente who arrived from Real Sociedad still out with a groin injury. Luke Ayling who plays at right-back but recently has been covering up for the injured players by playing in the middle alongside the youngster Pascal Struijk.
Although the Leeds fans have had their say on social media pages claiming that a centre-back and a midfielder should be a priority for Leeds this January window. But even a Julian Draxler transfer rumour could hype up the fans as Leeds look to strengthen their squad in depth.
Leeds will next face League Two side Crawley Town in the FA Cup Round-3 at the Peoples Pension Stadium.
