Could free agent Robert Huth be the answer to the Leeds injury problem?

Leeds United are facing a real crisis in defence right now and manager Marcelo Bielsa may need to consider a free agent to cover in the squad.

The Whites have confirmed that Gaetano Berardi is set to be sidelined for up to 16 weeks due to a hamstring injury, which leaves the squad depleted of senior options at centre-back.

Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper are the most recognisable options in the heart of defence, but there is very little behind them in the squad.

The 34-year-old is currently without a club and a move to Elland Road to return to football could be a great tempter.

 

He is a no-nonsense centre-back that has performed at the top flight for most of his career and was a part of the famous Leicester team that won the 2015/16 Premier League.

Huth is a 6ft 3in colossus with tremendous strength and bringing in someone of his know-how could be smart by Bielsa.

Leeds will be in huge trouble if they suffer anymore injury setbacks in the centre-back department and need back-up options to keep up a promotion bid in the Championship.
