How Leeds United best XI and bench could look after January transfer window with fully fit squad

Leeds United are approaching the final few days of the January transfer window - but how could the Whites XI and bench look after Monday's 11pm deadline, if and when the Whites finally have a fully fit squad?

That looks some way off as Marcelo Bielsa's side are still dealing with a host of injuries, Kalvin Phillips and Liam Cooper not expected back until March due to hamstring issues.

Junior Firpo and Adam Forshaw also missed last weekend's defeat at home to Newcastle United with hamstring problems, joining Patrick Bamford (foot), Jamie Shackleton (Achilles), Charlie Cresswell (shoulder), Sam Greenwood (knee) and Crysencio Summerville (shoulder) on the sidelines.

It is rare for any club to have no players in the treatment room but 'if' everyone was available, this is how a full strength Leeds XI and bench could look if United get their way in the last few days of the January transfer window.

Leeds sit 15th in the Premier League table, seven points clear of the drop zone, and the Whites are not due back in action until the away clash at Aston Villa on Wednesday, February 9.
