Leeds United recruitment chief has narrowed their search for a midfielder down to just one target, the Yorkshire Evening Post suggest.

Midfielder incoming?

Leeds have been linked with a raft of midfielders since their promotion to the Premier League.

Last term Marcelo Bielsa largely stuck with the same midfield which had earned Leeds promotion.

But it seems that fresh blood could be added in the centre of the pitch this time around.

Leeds are now said to have identified their top target for the position, with Orta working on doing a deal.

No imminent additions

However, any Leeds fans hoping to see a fresh face any time soon may be disappointed, as the report adds that nothing is imminent.

If Leeds do sign a midfielder it seems most likely that he will be a creative influence.

With Kalvin Phillips’ place assured, Leeds will surely be looking at players to start ahead of him.

Mateusz Klich’s position in their midfield three may be most vulnerable, although it is not stated by the YEP whether the midfielder is being signed as an immediate starter or as a back-up option.
