‘I can sense desperation with this deal’ – Leeds United set to seal deadline day deal: The verdict



Leeds United are closing in on a deadline day deal to sign Everton centre-back Matthew Pennington on loan for the season, reports Football Insider.

Would the man who spent last season on loan at Elland Road be a good signing?

We discuss….

George Dagless

Some fans won’t like it but I think it’s a decent enough signing.

I don’t think he’s that bad a player and he has potential to do well.

In a more confident Leeds side he should kick on, too.

Jay Williams

Leeds should have been aiming higher than Pennington.

I know the Everton youngster is only likely to be back-up and he is a cheap option on a loan, but there are definitely better choices out there.

Pennington failed to impress last season but I suppose he does add depth at centre-half.

Gary Hutchinson

Not for me, Pennington hasn’t impressed at Goodison Park and he wasn’t influential at Elland Road last season either.

This move smacks of a club missing out on their main targets, and settling for what is available.

Sam Rourke

He’s a decent defender but not amazing.

He failed to really impress consistently at Elland Road last season, and I can sense desperation with this deal.

With the deadline edging closer, Leeds need a centre-back and it seems they are going to have to settle with the Everton man.
