One in, one out: The Deadline Day deals Leeds should prioritise

Leeds United are among the bookies’ favourites to reach the Premier League this season.

Leeds United kicked off their 2018/19 campaign in style with a 3-1 thrashing of former Premier League club Stoke City, whetting the appetite of their ardent supporters in the process.

The Whites were in scintillating form in the final third and their high intensity style of play left the Potters pondering what could be a long season back in the Championship.

Leeds are now in capable hands on the managerial front with world renowned boss Marcelo Bielsa now in the Elland Road hot seat and there is a real sense that this might just be their season.

Having taken some time to get going in the transfer market the Whites burst into life last week with the arrivals of Barry Douglas and Patrick Bamford, representing two recruits boasting lots of experience in the second tier.

With the transfer window about to expire the West Yorkshire-based club could be in line to tie up a few more deals and we look at two deals they should prioritise on Deadline Day.

Incoming – Albert Adomah

 

The Aston Villa winger is reportedly in talks with Leeds United over a move to Elland Road, according to Leeds Live (8th August, 19:40).

The 30-year-old is now in his final year of his contract at Villa Park and it seems that he has been pushed down the pecking order under Steve Bruce at Villa Park, alerting several clubs towards his availability.

Having signed a prolific striker like Bamford this summer it is vital that Leeds supply him with the right service in order to score goals and Adomah would certainly offer that.

Outgoing – Eunan O’Kane

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Charlton Athletic are preparing a late swoop on Leeds for the services of midfielder Eunan O’Kane.

The 28-year-old doesn’t look as though he has much of a future at Elland Road and a move to London would certainly hand him more opportunities to play regular first-team football.

O’Kane didn’t exactly adhere himself to the Whites’ faithful last season with a series of below-par performances and move could be just what he needs to try and revitalise his career.
