Leeds United round-up: Van La Parra linked, loan plans and Browne scouted
Van La Parra wanted
Leeds United are interested in the signature of Dutch attacker Rajiv van la Parra, according to The Sun.
Middlesbrough are leading the race for the Huddersfield player, who has struggled for first-team football in the Premier League this season. His price-tag reportedly sits at £5 million.
The Daily Mail has run a lengthy piece on the way in which Marcelo Bielsa has turned around the fortunes at Leeds United.
The Argentine reportedly has his own quarters at the Leeds training ground, in case he decides to stay the night. The players are also constantly checked for body fat to ensure they are sticking to the strict regimen at Thorp Arch.
Perhaps most interesting from a transfer perspective is later in the article. The report states Leeds will buy a goalkeeper in the January transfer window. However, when it comes to outfield players, Leeds will only be looking to bring players in on loan.
Football Insider is reporting Leeds United as keen on the signature of West Ham attacker Marcus Browne.
Leeds, along with West Brom, Derby, Stoke, Bristol City, Rotherham and Sheffield United are considering signing the player on loan.
Browne is currently with Oxford United, but that deal comes to an end in January and West Ham want him to play in the Championship.
