Leeds United could clinch promotion by landing Che Adams on loan

The Southampton striker has struggled for game time and could leave on loan in January.

Leeds United look to be in a nice position to finally get over the line and win promotion back to the Premier League. 

The Whites were beaten in last season’s play-off semi-final by Derby County and will look to go one better this time around.

With January on the horizon, Leeds could be preparing to make a couple of additions to their squad.

One or two new players would do no harm at all for Marcelo Bielsa, who will be desperate for a taste of the Premier League.

One man who could leave his current club in January is Southampton forward Che Adams.

The 23-year-old signed for the Saints in the summer. He cost £15 million (BBC Sport) from Birmingham but hasn’t quite made the grade just yet.

Adams has registered just one assist during his 15 appearances and he has started just six league games.

With the forward viewed as one for the future, Adams could be allowed out on loan in order to aid his development.

 

If that is to be the case Leeds would be wise to pounce.

Nottingham Forest have been credited with an interest, according to Nottinghamshire Live. 

Elland Road would surely prove an attractive destination, however, not least due to their promotion credentials.

Adams is a proven Championship performer and he could be just the man to guide Leeds over the line.

Perfect

His all-action style would make him a quality component of a Bielsa team and chances would be extremely forthcoming given the amount of creativity in the squad.

Interest would likely be rife if Adams was to become available and Leeds might need to act quickly.

He could be the perfect January signing and if he proves remotely as prolific as he was last season, Leeds would be certainties for promotion.
