Leeds United are enduring an abysmal run of form in the league at present.
Thomas Christiansen’s side have lost seven out of their last nine matches and have dropped down to tenth in the division after a poor few weeks.
Leeds face Middlesbrough and Wolves in their next two league games…. It’s a depressing time to be a Leeds fan as it stands.
Christiansen knows he is on the brink, but will surely have one eye on the January transfer window.
One player Leeds could make a move for is Newcastle outcast Jack Colback.
The central midfielder simply isn’t getting a look in under Rafa Benitez, and a move away in January to somewhere like Leeds could be beneficial for all parties involved.
Should Leeds make a move for Colback in January?
The writers here at FLW issue their verdicts on this….
Yes, he would be a great addition!
Leeds have been a soft touch away from home at times this season and the Newcastle man would add some bite and aggression to the team.
As well as that, he’s proven himself as a capable player at this level, the Whites are short in midfield and he’s frozen out at St. James’ Park.
It makes sense for everyone.
He’s very similar to Eunan O’Kane in central midfield, but it wouldn’t be a bad addition to Leeds’ squad.
Leeds appear to be lacking Championship experience, which Colback would undoubtedly bring.
Colback has experience within a Championship winning side and would offer a lot to Leeds if they moved in January.
The midfielder has also covered the left-back spot, which has been a huge problem for Leeds since Charlie Taylor’s departure.
I think that would make sense.
Colback has plenty of experience but isn’t playing for Newcastle and I don’t think he is going to any time soon.
The Championship is probably about his level and his energy and work-rate should help Leeds when they get into physical games.
He could make a difference.
The midfielder is vastly experienced at Premier League level, and should find the transition to the Championship relatively straightforward having played in the division before.
Leeds have lacked bite in the middle of the park in recent weeks, and Colback could be the spark the side needs.
