Michael Bridges thinks Leeds United will sign more players in this transfer window

Former Leeds United man Michael Bridges believes that his old club do have a few more transfer deals lined up.

Speaking to Optus Sport, Bridges made a bold prediction for the rest of the window and can see the Whites adding to the additions they have already made.

So far in this transfer window, Leeds have signed a few players for the Under-23s as well as signing Jack Harrison, Junior Firpo, and Kristoffer Klaesson permanently but Bridges doesn’t think that will be the end of Leeds’ business.

He said: “The Harrison signing is tremendous. He’s been one of the standout players [during his three season-long loans from Manchester City. Firpo, coming in from Barcelona, the left-back … they’re two good recruits, and I believe there’s a couple more to come.”

What does Bridges know?

It is unclear if this is just what Bridges thinks will happen or if he has heard something from someone at the club about the Whites’ transfer business.

Either way, it will be intriguing to see if he is right or not.

Leeds do want another central midfielder, and we would be surprised if they end the transfer window without strengthening Marcelo Bielsa’s midfield options [Yorkshire Evening Post].

However, it is unclear what the Whites will do apart from that, and it could be a waiting game for certain targets.

Remember Raphinha was signed right at the end of the transfer window, and look how good he has been. So there could be a potential surprise or bargain to come, if Leeds are patient enough.

Bridges sounds confident of more business, and we think Leeds will make at least one more first-team addition, but it remains to be seen who that could be.
