Liam Lindsay would be an ideal centre-back target for Leeds United

With the January transfer window approaching, it is time for Leeds United to sign a new defender.

Although Marcelo Bielsa has previously expressed a reluctance to dip into the transfer market, it is imperative that Leeds have a strong enough squad to cope with the demands of a promotion push.

Leeds sit top of the Championship despite their concerns at the back but more injuries could prove to be a disaster.

Bielsa needs to add at least one new defender to add strength in depth to his ranks.

And Barnsley defender Liam Lindsay would be an ideal candidate for the Whites.

Lindsay has been a rock at the back for Barnsley this season, helping his side to 7th in the table.

Lindsay moved to England from Partick Thistle in summer 2017, signing a three-year deal at Oakwell.

The Scottish defender played 42 Championship games for Barnsley last season and earned rave reviews despite their relegation to League One.

With Championship experience already under his belt and some impressive form in the third tier, Lindsay could fit in well at Leeds.

When Liam Cooper and Pontus Jansson are both fit, he might be a back-up choice but the 23-year-old could be a shrewd long-term acquisition for Bielsa’s men.
