So it appears that Jack Clarke will be rejoining Leeds from Spurs on loan once his signing is complete.

So what does this mean for the rest of the team? Jack Harrison is close to joining Leeds again, this time with an option to make the deal permanent, and Wolverhampton’s Helder Costa looks to be joining on loan soon as well.

All of this means that the competition for time on the wing will be greatly increased this season, and will this mean that Pablo Hernandez will be moved to the middle, playing in an enganche role? Or will Harrison and Clarke simply have to beat out Costa and Hernandez for playing time or coming off the bench? Marcelo Bielsa doesn’t exactly believe in rotation, but perhaps he’s adjusted his thinking for the drudgery of the Championship schedule.

Anyway, it’s gonna be crowded on the wings this year, hopefully the increased depth will result in a better end of the season.
