Sky Sports pundit details 'first port of call' for Leeds United in the Premier League

David Prutton has claimed that Premier League survival must be the “first port of call” for Leeds United next season.

The Sky Sports pundit believes that no matter how big of a club the Whites are, they must make sure that next season isn’t a one-off.

Players such as Jack Harrison have already admitted they are looking to replicate Sheffield United and potentially finish higher up than the Blades did last season.

Prutton was making his prediction on Monday and claimed that his former side can start to dream after one season is out of the way.

“But as much as Leeds is Leeds United and they are happy to be back mixing it with the big boys, they are back to being a shareholder in the Premier League and they want to make sure that they are in the same meetings at the start of next season,” he told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“That has got to be the first port of call. After that, then you start believing and then you can start dreaming over what could possibly come next.”
Prutton is spot on, but the ambition to do so much more will flow through the squad all the way from Marcelo Bielsa.
Leeds have all that it takes to succeed in the top-flight, and Angus Kinnear has recently confirmed that they will have an impressive budget to go into the Premier League with.
The Whites chief executive admitted that Victor Orta and his team will have between £75million and £100million to spend over the summer.
That doesn’t guarantee anything, with Aston Villa surviving by the skin of their teeth despite spending more than £100million – Leeds must still go out and do the business.
