Thomas Christiansen has calmed everyone at the club by confirming that Leeds are in talks over new signings, and he says he expects it to be a very busy ending to the transfer window, with Leeds having over £20 million in the bank after the sale of Wood adding to the Charlie Taylor fee.

It seems obvious but it doesn’t always happen, Leeds have been approaching other clubs for replacements for Wood because the striker leaving was always a possibility. We needed another striker when Wood was staying so now we need two, and Caleb Ekuban, who had a very good game tonight went off with what looked like a bad injury which certainly leaves us shorter than any time I cane remember at the club. Lee Erwin has been sold and Marcus Antonsson has been loaned to Blackburn for the season.

Leeds most natural (fit) striker is Kemar Roofe, who certainly isn’t an out-and-out forward although he did well at times tonight leading the way. There are options out there, Nelson Oliviera, Jordan Rhodes, Nakhi Wells and Benik Afobe are all currently out of favour at their clubs and are players who could potentially make an impression at the club. Leeds have a lot of work to do in the transfer market and Andrea Radrizzani needs to spend the majority of the money that has been received for Chris Wood and of course Charlie Taylor. We are very short in the forward ranks now and movement has to be quick and decisive.

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.
