Scrap the last article, the deal is further along now, with Cameron Borthwick-Jackson on the brink of joining Leeds. The Manchester United left back is currently having a medical at Leeds ahead of a season-long-loan, a very good move for Leeds who are currently without a natural left back.

Thomas Christiansen all but confirmed that he was a target by saying he had watched him a few times and really liked him, before saying that an announcement on a left-back should be sooner rather than later. Leeds have been eyeing Borthwick-Jackson for some time, the story that we were interested in him has been in the news for well over a month. The club have been in a tug of war with Burnley all summer over a fee for Charlie Taylor who did everything he could to get out of the club, including refusing to play at Wigan on the final day of last season, something that Leeds fans will remember well.

Gaetano Berardi is currently the first choice left back despite not being naturally suited to that position. Having a natural left back is a must, injuries and suspensions are bound to happen and not having one even in the squad would leave us very vulnerable. Tyler Denton is the only natural left-back in the first-team squad and he is set to be loaned out himself to a League One club after signing a new deal with Leeds today, a loan move crucial in his development at this stage. Borthwick-Jackson has played a few games in the Premier League and is highly rated by Jose Mourinho. He spent part of last season on loan at Wolves, but only played six times, the loan not working out quite as planned.

The deal should be confirmed tomorrow at some stage.

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.
