Phil Hay: Early noises quiet for Leeds signings in January

Phil Hay has shared that Leeds United have remained quiet on any potential early signings in the January window.

The Whites are said to be looking to bring in a new midfielder, with Kalvin Phillips set to be out until March at the earliest.

Hay admitted that things could change in terms of signings, but nothing looks imminent so far three days into the window.

Writing in a Q&A for The Athletic in the past 24 hours, Hay shared if any early noises were coming from Elland Road.

“Incomings could change that but it’s been quiet on that front too so far,” he wrote.

Please change.

The 3-1 win over Burnley yesterday (2nd January) was huge, but it shouldn’t change anything moving further into this month.

Looking at the bench, Marcelo Bielsa had nearly nothing to call upon apart from Dan James and Joe Gelhardt, who made huge differences.

What happens when you need something more senior to come on though? There was nothing for El Loco to choose from in those terms.

Adding a couple of more experienced players, one in midfield and one in the final third could be critical between now and the end of the window.

Hay’s update means that nothing is imminent, and any business could go down to the very wire on deadline day – something that would be very Leeds.

Down to you, Victor Orta.
