Leeds coach Marcelo Bielsa believes that there will be no more additions to the squad ahead of the new Premier League season. Leeds have signed junior Firpo from Barcelona as well as securing the services of Jack Harrison on a permanent basis from Manchester City. The winger was on loan from the champions for the last couple of seasons. Ezgjan Alioski, Barry Douglas, and Pablo Hernandez left the club after their contracts expired. Bielsa recently signed a contract extension after finishing ninth in the Premier League last season.
“It’s not probable that any more signings will be made. I’m happy with the players I can count on at the moment.” Leeds coach Marcelo Bielsa said. “It’s the same group as last season with the substitution of Firpo for (Ezgjan) Alioski. If we have the option to bring another player in we will do it as long as that player is able to challenge the player who already has that position.”
“Another week of work means physically [Phillips] is better and closer,” he added. “Signings that strengthen the team means a player has to compete with players who already have a position. That means there’s a very high cost to these,”
Leeds was beaten heavily by Manchester United at Old Trafford on the first day of the season. Bruno Fernandes put on a spectacular performance scoring a hattrick. Leeds United have spent considerably less in the transfer market after spending heavily the last season. Rodrigo, Raphinha, Diego Llorente, Robin Koch, and Helder Costa were all additions made last year.
