Leeds United: Elland Road trio of new deals could have an impact on future transfer business

Leeds United have agreed new deals with Sam Greenwood, Joe Gelhardt and Crysencio Summerville and that could have an impact on the Whites’ future transfer business.

Jesse Marsch has been linked with no end of attacking players in recent weeks, with Arnaud Kalimuendo and Martin Terrier two names that are continually linked with a move to Elland Road.

A move for Club Brugge striker Charles De Ketelaere now looks dead and buried, but should Marsch perhaps look a little bit closer to home when it comes to his striking options?

The Whites offering new deals to the attacking trio could well indicate that the American is more than happy to entrust his youth players in his first team plans this season.

Greenwood has been impressive in preseason and could well provide the Marsch with a good option to be back-up to Patrick Bamford in the 2022/23 season.

Gelhardt has already proven himself to be more than capable of making an impact at Elland Road and will feature heavily for Leeds this season.

The forward pair could well be better options for Marsch to call upon instead of investing heavily in another younger talent from the continent.

The club should be looking to give their younger players a chance, as they have previously done.

If Marsch does land a striker from Europe, it could well impact the amount of game time they are given at Elland Road.

Gelhardt is likely to feature regularly, and Summerville will be given chances in a wider area, however, if another striker does come to West Yorkshire, then Greenwood’s first-team chances could be impacted.

It is crucial that Greenwood is featuring regularly in the upcoming season, as he reaches a crucial part of his development.

Hopefully, the trio signing new deals could well mean Greenwood is in line to be a big part of Marsch’s plans for the upcoming Premier League season.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites now want to sign this striker with a rival set to kickstart a major £30million+ transfer battle
