Two Loan Signings Leeds United could make before the transfer deadline
Leeds United have started their quest for Premier League promotion with wins in their first two Championship games against Stoke City, Derby County and Rotherham. The Marcelo Bielsa football is in full action so early into the season, which makes us think what the situation would be midway through the campaign.
However, the way Leeds play their football, the intensity is always high and the physical action of each player is right up there. Hence, the manager would require squad depth of comparable quality throughout the season.
They might need one or two more players to complete their squad and have a full go at the Championship title this season. Here are two players they can target on a season-long loan:
Juan Foyth (Tottenham Hotspur)
Foyth is an Argentina U-20 international and a quality centre-back playing for Tottenham at the moment. He arrived in North London last season from Argentine club Estudiantes. Despite all the potential and talent that Foyth possesses, he hasn’t been able to break into Tottenham’s first-team on a regular basis.
He played a few cup games and displayed his quality. Leeds United under Bielsa might benefit from having the 20-year-old in their squad. The youngster would also enjoy the fact that Leeds play in a system similar to that of Tottenham.
All in all, it will be a good move from the Peacocks’ point of view to sign a player with high potential.
Yaya Toure (Free Agent)
Even though Toure is 35 years old, the experience and know-how of a serial Premier League winner will be a useful addition to the Leeds squad. He is a free agent now, so Championship clubs have an opportunity to sign free agents until the end of August.
Bielsa can get the Ivorian to help his squad gain some knowledge of how to get past tough situations. Toure can play certain games when required in a long season for the Peacocks. The former Manchester City man has played for some of the biggest clubs in Europe, so he will certainly be a vital inclusion to the squad.
