Phil Hay has revealed that conversations about possible transfers and key areas for improvement that are to be addressed in the summer transfer window, including left-back, holding-midfield, central-midfield as well as a versatile attacker.
Leeds are currently sitting in 12th position at the time of writing and are not yet mathematically safe with 14 games to go. However, if The Whites manage to stay in The Premier League for next season then big plans are expected for new players as well as stronger infrastructure around the club, with a new training ground also in the future plans.
Marcelo Bielsa has been involved in talks about the next transfer window and people close to him say he is more and more invested in the 'long game' at Leeds.— Phil Hay (@PhilHay_) February 20, 2021
This season has weighed heavily on coaches like Nuno but Bielsa's spirit seems undiminished:https://t.co/XssXifmgys
The future of Marcelo Bielsa is something that is very difficult to pinpoint. The 65-year-old Argentine is living on the other side of the world from his family and doesn’t tend to stick around at clubs for very long. In fact, Bielsa has been at Leeds for longer than his tenures at any other club in his career.
Phil Hay has quoted a source close to Bielsa saying that he is:
“more and more in the long game,“
This is certainly something that Leeds fans want to hear, with new investment from the San Francisco 49ers and others such as Chad Hurley making for more excitement for the potential that resides in Leeds United as a club and as a team.
There is still plenty of work to be done though as Leeds still have 14 games left to play in The Premier League, but this is certainly some positive news for Leeds fans.
