Sky Sports pundit: Leeds United disappoint in the transfer window with two big failures

We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United...

Paul Robinson has insisted that Leeds United disappointed in the recent transfer window after it slammed shut in the past week at Elland Road.

The ex-Whites goalkeeper admitted that the signings of Marc Roca, Brenden Aaronson and Tyler Adams have been successful, but doubted the rest of the business.

Missing out on another experienced striker, as well as a left-back were the clear issues in the squad, and that is set to continue until January at least.

“I think they’ve had a successful window in the form of Roca, Aaronson and Adams,” he exclusively told MOT Leeds News.

“I think, all in all, it was a disappointing window because the two priority positions were a back-up striker or someone who can challenge Patrick Bamford, and a left-back – they got neither. Whether they feel like Pascal Struijk can do a job or they’re hoping that Firpo can find form.

“I still think they are light.”

Andrea Radrizzani actually ended the summer in profit in terms of transfer prices.

Selling both Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha for big money meant he could bring in numerous new faces but still end up in the green, much to the disappointment of many.

Leeds ended the window with the signing of Wilfried Gnonto, another young attacker who will take him and is unlikely to hit the ground running in the Premier League.

It looked like a panic button signing and only adds to the questions.

There will be many questions to answer should this slump in form continue, although many will be hoping that the return to fitness of many helps Jesse Marsch massively.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites tried a late summer deal to sign this Leicester player.
