Leeds United transfer news: Kinnear plans, Van La Parra disappointment and Fabri wanted
Leeds United managing director Angus Kinnear has discussed the club’s plans for the winter transfer window in his recent programme notes.
He stated that the club will ‘evaluate’ the potential to bring in new players. However, he also made it clear that new signings ‘need to add significant and immediate capability to the first team, fit within our reasonable wage structure and not destabilise the squad’.
Leeds United are currently top of the Championship.
Parried on Parra
One man who will not be joining the club is Rajiv Van La Parra.
Leeds were recently linked with a move for the Dutchman who has been struggling for first-team football at Huddersfield Town.
However, as reported by Sky Sports, he is joining Middlesbrough. A medical is due to take place and he could be available for their New Year’s Day fixture.
Leeds United are reportedly eyeing up Fulham goalkeeper Fabri as a potential January option. The reports are sparse, seemingly originating in Turkey.
Fabri is a former Besiktas stopper, which suggests why a Turkish link is present.
Leeds are looking for a new keeper in January and the Spaniard is barely playing at Craven Cottage. Rayo Vallecano are also keen on his signature.
The 30-year-old only joined Fulham in the summer but is currently behind Sergio Rico and Marcus Bettinelli in the pecking order.
