Liam Bridcutt eventually signed after weeks and weeks in the loan window last season and it seems to be heading that way yet again. Leeds want Liam Bridcutt and Liam Bridcutt wants to come to Leeds. In years gone by it would be pretty simple, but not in today’s game. Someone has to blink.

The problem was then and still is now that we need a player like Liam Bridcutt in the team sooner rather than later. It was no coincidence we went on the best run of the season shortly after Liam Bridcutt arrived through the door at Elland Road. The issue I have is that we shouldn’t need to go for a player “like” Liam Bridcutt when the Scottish international is wanting to play for the club. It’s extremely frustrating that we can’t reach an agreement at the moment.

The interest was there even before Garry Monk arrived at the club. Massimo Cellino has made it quite clear in the pursuit of Bridcutt that Leeds United want him, no matter who is in charge. Garry Monk would have given his blessing on the deal, just like he did with Marcus Antonsson. It was pretty clear yesterday that we need a player like him in the team, Sol Bamba not a player that will lead us to success in my opinion.

One way or another we will know in a couple of weeks. I think both parties need to realise that the best for the club is a deal at the soonest possible moment. Fingers crossed anyway, 26 is free after all.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
