Leeds United ended up signing Jean-Kevin Augustin in January to try help reinforce their attacking options, but they were linked with a host of different players during the recent transfer window.
The 22-year-old has been unable to make a serious impact since his loan switch to Elland Road and fortunately others have been chipping in, so the Whites currently sit top of the Championship table.
One player that Marcela Bielsa’s team were reportedly keen on is Cauley Woodrow from Championship and Yorkshire rivals Barnsley.
Woodrow plays for a Barnsley side that are sat bottom of the league table, but it’s not stopped him impressing and his reputation has continued to grow.
According to the Sun on Sunday in its print edition (5 January, Page 61), Leeds were interested in a move for the Barnsley attacker.
The 25-year-old ended up remaining at Oakwell and has discovered great form since the January window closed.
Woodrow has scored five goals in just eight appearances since the transfer window shut and has been a real standout for a struggling team.
The English attacker has found success in a deeper number 10 role during recent months, as he’s technically sound on the ball and intelligent with his movement.
But he provides a physical presence too that means he can lead the line if needed and Leeds should have some regret that they didn’t push harder to get a deal over the line for him completed.
