Leeds should hijack reported interest in Leicester midfielder Andy King

Leeds United sit top of the Championship table as it stands this season, but the squad is being put through a tough schedule by manager Marcelo Bielsa.

The Whites are perhaps a little light in the midfield area and that situation was furthered by the exit of Lewis Baker in January after joining on loan from Chelsea.

Bielsa should try bring in another central midfield option to Elland Road this month if he can, who can compete alongside the likes of Mateusz Klich, Kalvin Phillips and Adam Forshaw for a starting position.

The Yorkshire giants should consider a swoop for Leicester City’s Andy King, as he’s been frozen out of the first team at the King Power Stadium this season.

According to Sky Sports, Nottingham Forest are one of several Championship teams that want to take the 30-year-old on loan.

Leeds should hijack interest in the Wales international and add him to a group of players chasing a return to the top flight.

 

King is an experienced player that has made just one senior appearance this campaign, but would be valuable to Leeds.

The central midfielder has been on Leicester’s incredible rise from League One to Premier League winners, scoring 61 goals in 375 appearances for the club.

His experience of winning promotion from the Championship in the past would be part of the reason he could be the Leeds dressing room, while he’s a quality player too.

King can add goals from the centre of the park and has quality on the ball, while his work-rate would match Bielsa’s system.
