‘Don’t go to bed just yet’ – a phrase used by Leeds United’s Twitter account on one deadline day that bit back harsh when the Whites signed nobody and sold Matt Smit and Dom Poleon. Transfer windows have largely not been United fans’ friends since then.
Until this one, well actually others preceding it have been pretty decent too. This transfer window, the first since a 16-year wait for Premier League football, has been brilliant to be fair. Rodrigo Moreno, Robin Koch and Diego Llorente have all joined – each of them being current internationals.
There are said to be other irons in the transfer fires too. News is sketchy but that hasn’t stopped Leeds United fans from getting a little ‘insight’ of their own.

After tracking planes through international airspace, laying siege to Elland Road is next on the list of ‘insights’ that Leeds United fans aim to gain about any incoming deals. Phil Hay says that one, in particular, is more oven-ready than any deal that Boris Johnson could cook up:
Sources in Germany say Cuisance to Leeds is increasingly likely. Fee and details still being discussed but Bayern look ready to deal. #lufc

Cuisance is a 21-year-old France Under-20 international with 7 caps and 3 goals to his name. He established himself in the Strasbourg youth set-up before a move to Nancy in 2014. It was from Nancy to Borussia Monchengladbach in 2017 and a near-£11m move to Bayern Munich in mid-August last year. He made 9 appearances for Bayern last season, scoring one goal and providing 1 assist.
With Leeds United ‘optimistic’ of landing the young Frenchman, their spending could be pushed to nearly £80m with his secured arrival. A far cry from the ‘Don’t go to bed just yet’ days.
