Leeds are battling for the playoff positions right now, and as much as we all have faith in the Leeds players, even Christiansen is now saying that some investment is needed to take the club forward.

During yesterday’s press conference, TC was unusually candor about the needs of the team in regards to the January transfer window. And while, yes, the winter market isn’t great, the club needs another striker option.

Phil Hay reports that the club is interested in Jordan Hugill from Preston North End, but that the price tag, £8 million, has put the club off from pursuing him.

Does that mean a striker is on his way? Let’s hope so.

On to the links.
