'Biggest change in playing personnel' - Exclusive: Pundit claims Leeds set for busy summer
We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
Paul Robinson has said that Leeds will be set for their “biggest change in playing personnel” for a while if they secure promotion to the Premier League.
That’s still not been confirmed yet, despite it being mid-May, with the season currently suspended because of the Coronavirus.
That’s going to have a knock-on effect on the transfer window and there’s been no word on when that will open and close.
Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Robinson said, “It will probably be the biggest change in playing personnel in the Leeds side for a while because of the quality that you need in the Premier League.
“Depending on what happens with Berardi… It looks like Berardi might be moving on and if Leeds don’t manage to sign Ben White on a permanent deal then that’s an area they’re going to have to look at and potentially bring two in.
“However, Leeds should really do everything they can to bring in White and Jack Harrison first on permanent deals because of the age they are and the quality they provide.”
Leeds have a lot of business already on the table.
There’s an obligation to buy Jean-Kevin Augustin if they get promoted and Helder Costa’s loan is set to turn into a permanent deal.
Leeds have an option to sign Jack Harrison and Illan Meslier, and will be hoping to make Ben White’s loan deal permanent.
