Report reveals possibility of EFL tweaking rules for transfers with Leeds out of action

The current suspension of action in the EFL is causing uncertainty in every fan base, including Leeds United.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men are nine games away from promotion, but the current Championship season is postponed until the 30th of April as things stand.

The FA also adjusted their rules so that the season can go past June, something that could affect the summer transfer window although there has been no comment on that.

As it stands, Leeds would not be able to bring in a signing unless they are in an emergency situation such as needing a goalkeeper down to injuries or suspensions.

The Yorkshire Evening Post has revealed that there could be a possibility of the EFL tweaking the registration deadline with the peculiar manner of the current season.

It is suggested that would need to be approved by FIFA who are in charge of ratifying the periods of each country with regards to transfers.

It is highly unlikely that Leeds would need to go into the market for any outfield players in this period, with injured players such as Adam Forshaw having the potential of returning during the break – the midfielder shared himself on the exercise bike recently.

The only nightmare that could face the Whites is in goal with Kiko Casilla out for six more games due to his racism ban. Illan Meslier is currently on loan and Leeds could attempt to turn his move into a permanent one before the end of the campaign.

The Mirror did reveal that Leeds are ready to activate a deal for the Frenchman, with Bielsa having been impressed and ready to utilise him after Casilla leaves the club – a deal which could be concluded before the season ends.
