Apparent Boaz Myhill interest highlights what Leeds United still need despite Jamal Blackman deal

The Leeds goalkeeping department is lacking experience.

One area where Leeds United have been needing to improve this summer has been in goal. WIth Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan leaving the club after poor one season stints plenty of names have been mentioned. It seems that Jamal Blackman will be the man to take the reins.

However, according to Hull Live, it seems Boaz Myhill was also on their radar.

Hew left West Brom this summer after his contract with the Baggies came to an end and the club suffered relegation.

It now appears he is off to Bolton Wanderers, but should Leeds have been more forceful in their interest?

 

The one concern, if Leeds go with Blackman and Bailey Peacock-Farrell next season, will be a lack of experience in the goalkeeping department.

At 35-years-old Myhill would have been a brilliant addition to the pack. The wily veteran could have added the experience necessary to help Blackman, still young at 24-years-old and the talented but raw 21-year-old.

Of course, Myhill would not have wanted to play second or even third fiddle for a Championship side. So Bolton, on his part makes perfect sense. He will be a regular in some of the final years of his career.

But hearing of Leeds apparent interest earlier this summer does highlight the need perhaps for another recruit. A 30-plus stopper willing to play a bit-part role and help the young Leeds keeper department improve and develop.

If Leeds can find such a player, they would be wise to snap him up.
