30-y/o in, defender out: Leeds United should look to round January off with these deals



The January transfer window slams shut on Thursday and Leeds United are still in the market for recruits to bolster their promotion prospects.

Marcelo Bielsa has added Kiko Casilla to his side so far, who remain top of the Championship, six points clear of third.

If the Whites want to keep their lead at the summit of the league, then they will need to add players to strengthen their ranks, to compensate for the increased injury problems this year.

Three players have left in Conor Shaughnessy, Paudie O’Connor and Samuel Saiz so far exiting Elland Road.

With less than four days left in the transfer window, Leeds United should look to round January off with these deals.

Daniel James: In

The Swansea man has been heavily linked with the Yorkshire club, who are reportedly set to bid around £10million for the midfielder.

Adding the 21-year-old could be a huge step in getting Leeds to where they want to be, come the end of the season.

It has been a pursuit that has lasted the whole month and looks to be going down to the wire.

Floyd Ayite: In

The 30-year-old has found game time at Fulham hard to come by this year -having made just seven substitute appearances this term under Slavisa Jokanovic and Claudio Ranieri respectively.

Ayite played a role in Fulham’s promotion from the Championship last season and could well be a useful addition to Elland Road if he were indeed to leave the capital.

He is the type of player that Leeds desperately need in their side – something they lack, a physical, brute of a forward – and it would certainly give them another way of playing.

Tom Pearce: Out

The 20-year-old defender has 72 minutes of Championship football under his belt over two substitute appearances this term.

Cup football has proven to be a better source of first-team football, but at his age and with the likes of Jack Clarke coming though, he will want to start to play more regularly.

For that reason, Pearce could be on the way out of Elland Road, be it on-loan or for good to be able to start to get experience and game time under his belt.
