Last week, the Whites' pursuit of RB Salzburg midfielder Brenden Aaronson moved up a gear, with Leeds reportedly making two separate offers for the 21-year-old, though United are yet to prise him from the Austrian side, with the Mail on Sunday reporting that Leeds are expecting a rejection of their second bid.

Meanwhile, two of Leeds' own youngsters have departed Elland Road on loan, with Cody Drameh playing at Cardiff City, and Ryan Edmondson at Port Vale until the end of the season.

With everyone’s attention on the gaps in central midfield, what about what Bielsa is missing up top?

Brentford boss Thomas Frank commits to three more years at the Brentford Community Stadium

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe was asked about the Magpies’ need for signings after beating the Whites 1-0 at Elland Road on Saturday

I back the players that we have, regardless of who we recruit, but I think you saw the power of recruitment today - Wood and Trippier were magnificent, they made huge contributions to the match.

If you can get it right, you can elevate the team to greater heights. We’re still looking to do that, but I back our existing players.

Brentford are close to signing Christian Eriksen

Premier League newcomers Brentford are close to signing Christian Eriksen on a six-month contract, according to Sky Sports.

The deal will need to be signed off by a cardiologist before the West London club can proceed, since Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest while playing for Denmark at EURO 2020 last summer.

The former Spurs midfielder is currently a free agent after Inter Milan terminated his contract in accordance with Italy’s ban on professional sportspeople playing with ICD s (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator), which Eriksen had fitted following the EURO 2020 incident.

Tottenham Hotspur are preparing an improved bid for Wolves’ Adama Traoré

Spurs are set to offer Premier League rivals Wolves £20million for the Spaniard, according to The Sun.

Wolves were reportedly hoping to land £40m for Traoré but are now thought to be happy to settle for £30m.

Traoré has become the North London side’s number 1 target this transfer window and it is expected that the winger will become the first signing made under Tottenham boss Antonio Conte.

Conte sees Traoré slotting in at right wing-back at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and landing the 25-year-old’s signature could push Spurs right-back Matt Doherty out of the club.

Manchester United want player linked with Leeds United

Manchester United have made an enquiry into Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The 22-year-old has played a central role in Les Olympiens’ season so far, making 18 La Ligue appearances for the French side.

Linked with Leeds since the opening of the January window, Kamara has also attracted interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona.
