Leeds United round-up: Bond lined up, Halme could get chance and Llorente linked

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Leeds United.

Injury crisis

Leeds United face a goalkeeping crisis this weekend. The Whites take on Bristol City and already knew they would be without Jamal Blackman. The Chelsea loanee broke his leg in an under-23 game over the international break.

Now, Bailey Peacock-Farrell is also set to miss the game. He hurt his knee in training and Leeds are likely to start Kamil Miazek, according to Marcelo Bielsa.

Will Huffer will support him whilst the club may be eligible to sign an emergency loan keeper.

Bond…Jonathan Bond

The Yorkshire Evening Post is suggesting that former Reading and Watford goalkeeper Jonathan Bond could be on his way to Leeds.

 

The stopper is currently with West Brom but could be the subject of a seven-day emergency loan.

Leeds would have until 12pm tomorrow to complete the registration of a player for the Bristol game.

Halme chance

Leeds will also be without Pontus Jansson. As reported by Leeds Live, Bielsa confirmed that he is not looking likely to be fit again in time after missing international duty with Sweden.

Bielsa suggested either Kalvin Phillips or relatively unknown Finnish youngster Aapo Halme as potential replacements.

Llorente linked

Leeds have been linked with Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente. The Sun suggests Spurs could sell for £4 million and that Marcelo Bielsa may be interested in a reunion with the player. They worked together at Athletic Club.
