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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
