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 he would love Leeds to go back in for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher next summer.

Now, The Sun (Sunday, p62) claim that Leeds are set to go back in for a second go next summer with Chelsea rating the player at £10m.
Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News Robinson said, “They missed out on Conor Gallagher last summer. The transfer policy at Leeds is really strong at the moment and they’ve got a player profile in mind.
“If they missed out on a young target like Gallagher then I don’t see why he wouldn’t be on the list again going into next summer.
“Gallagher is definitely a player I’d really like to see at Leeds. He would bolster the squad and I actually think he’d be pushing for a starting place in the first-team. He’s done really well for West Brom.
“I’d like to see Leeds go back in for him without a shadow of a doubt.”
Gallagher can play in any of the three midfield spots – central, attacking and holding – and that versatility, along with his age and profile makes him a great fit for Leeds.
He’s at West Brom until the summer and we don’t expect Chelsea to recall him in the January window.
He is, however, a player that we think Leeds will try to sign next summer.
