Leeds United transfer update emerges after links to Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka
Leeds United are reportedly not expected to sign another right-back in January amid links with Manchester United outcast Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
90Min reported on 16 December that Leeds were among the clubs keeping tabs on the out-of-favour Englishman at Old Trafford.
However, the Yorkshire Evening Post [19 December] have clarified those claims and have stated that the Whites will not be strengthening in that area even though it looks likely that Cody Drameh will leave.
Common sense prevails
Manchester United have made a number of howlers in the past and Wan-Bissaka seems to be right up there with the worst of the lot.
After impressing briefly at Crystal Palace, the Red Devils decided to shell out big money and sign the English right-back.
According to the Guardian, they paid £45million up front for him in 2019 and he’s endured a tumultuous career at Old Trafford thus far and has fallen out of favour with Erik ten Hag.
This is why it was quite surprising to see Leeds being linked with him as Jesse Marsch already has two attack-minded right-backs in Rasmus Kristensen and Luke Ayling.
Wan-Bissaka’s main flaw is that he offers little to no attacking threat and he would be a pointless signing for Leeds as they rely on their attack-minded right-backs.
While we do not agree with the sale of Drameh, we can completely understand why they’re not signing Wan-Bissaka or any other right-back.
