With Leeds United's successful campaign at an end Leeds will now be looking to strengthen their squad instead of building a brand new one from scratch.

Howson has just turned down a contract with Norwich City which has prompted a lot of rumours circulating Twitter and Facebook about a potential return to Leeds United. Howson has been a regular player for Norwich making 175 appearances and scoring 22 goals since joining from Leeds for £2 Million in 2012. There is no doubt that he would fit right in with the likes of Vieira and Bridcutt and with reports going round valuing him at £4 Million it looks like a deal that could happen.

2. Martín Cáceres - Southampton

The Uruguayan defender currently plays for Southampton after joining last season on a free transfer from Juventus. Having only made one appearance for Southampton, he may look at rejuvenating his career by moving to Leeds United to play in the Championship. Caceres boasts a footballing CV that includes 69 international caps for Uruguay and has played at a high level with the likes of Barcelona, Sevilla and Juventus. He may be tempted to work alongside Leeds United's new director of football Victor Orta, the pair worked together at Sevilla.

3. Leigh Griffiths

Leeds are sitting pretty by having a Championship top goal scorer in Chris Wood but last season showed that we needed another prolific goal scorer playing alongside Wood to close games down early. Leigh Griffiths looks like the man who can bring some extra firepower to the team having scored 64 goals in 944 games for Celtic FC. Griffiths is currently the bookies favourite to put on a white shirt for the 2017/18 season.

With Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani still in the search for a manager, it looks likely that their wont be any movement on the transfer side of things but it will be interesting to see how the new owner goes about his business.
