Leeds United director of football Victor Orta has spoken about potential further transfer business at Elland Road this summer.
The Spaniard was quizzed about potentially replacing Pontus Jansson this summer by Leeds Live. The Leeds transfer chief stated that the club was at ‘90 percent’ regarding the squad they want to assemble for their Championship promotion charge.
“We are always open in the market, but now we are 90 per cent of the (squad we want)…
“…Ninety per cent is close, but obviously it’s football. In life the only thing I know is I am going to die.
“The rest – I am not sure of.”
So there is seemingly hope that Leeds will be bringing in at least one more player this summer.
Leeds have had a topsy-turvy summer in the transfer market. On the plus side, they secured Jack Harrison, Ben White and Helder Costa on loan deals from Manchester City, Brighton and Wolves respectively.
They lost Jack Clarke to Tottenham Hotspur, but managed to secure his loan return to the club.
But they then sold Pontus Jansson to Brentford in a deal that left many fans perplexed. The futures of Kalvin Phillips and Kemar Roofe are also in doubt with reported interest in the pair.
The current Leeds squad still looks thin ahead of next season, especially considering the way their campaign capitulated last term.
So hopefully Leeds can fill that remaining 10 percent, without losing any more players.
