It is transfer deadline day and Leeds United will be looking to conclude what has been a mixed transfer window for the Championship club.
Whilst the likes of Helder Costa, Jack Harrison, and Ben White have joined on loan, Leeds have also lost Pontus Jansson, Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Kemar Roofe. Several others have also left the club, whilst Jack Clarke signed for Spurs before returning on loan.
So who might Leeds bring in over the next 24 hours?
It seems a replacement for Roofe is the main goal of the day. Eddie Nketiah of Arsenal appears the likeliest target in that regard. As reported by The Independent, Leeds are set to beat Bristol City to the 20-year-old’s loan signature. Nketiah has failed to undergo a medical at Ashton Gate which was scheduled for yesterday, fuelling rumours that he will be heading to Elland Road.
Leeds are also said to be interested in Liverpool attacker Ryan Kent. The Daily Record reported yesterday that Leeds were planning on spending the £7 million raised by the sale of Roofe to bring in the former Rangers loanee.
However, The Athletic’s Leeds expert Phil Hay previously mentioned on Twitter that Leeds would only sign one of Nketiah or Kent.
Leeds are also chasing a new goalkeeper to replace Peacock-Farrell. The Yorkshire Evening Post reports that a deal to sign Lorient stopper Ilan Meslier on loan should be done by lunchtime.
Tottenham Hotspur defender Cameron Carter-Vickers has also been linked with a loan move to Leeds by The Sun. However, it seems the least likely of the current rumours.
