Waiting for Bielsa - a piece on the state of play at Leeds United and the appointment which would set the ball rolling this summer:https://t.co/sJt9l1Anwn— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) June 12, 2018
Everything at the club, from fans, to Phil Jay and the other journalists who cover the club, to the transfer plans, are all waiting for the manager situation with Marcelo Bielsa to finally come to an end so that the ball can get rolling on transfer deals and preseason plans.
Hay, of the Yorkshire Evening Post identified two new potential targets, Liverpool’s Harry Wilson, a winger who spent last year on loan at Hull City and Brentford defender John Egan. Both are in positions of need for the club, but with the status of the manager in flux, no deals are final as of yet.
So we wait.
