So what now is the club's strongest XI and bench? Lee Sobot puts together an idea of the best possible match-day 18 - with 11 days of the domestic window still left. Deals between Premier League and EFL clubs are permitted up until 5pm on Friday, October 16.
1. Illan Meslier (GK)
No doubt that he is Leeds United's no 1 and the Frenchman looks a snip having been secured for around £5m. Still open to huge improvement too at just 20 years of age. Exciting. Photo by MOLLY DARLINGTON/POOL/AFP via Getty Images.
2. Luke Ayling (RB)
One of the best bargains of recent times at around £250,000 from Bristol City in 2016. Full of energy up and down the flank from right back and can also cover at centre-back. Vice-captain. Photo by Paul Ellis - Pool/Getty Images.
3. Liam Cooper (CB)
United's captain, and another snip at around £600,000 from Chesterfield in 2014. Now on 201 appearances for the Whites but competition is strong for a start at centre-back, the way it should be. Photo by Catherine Ivill/Getty Images.
4. Robin Koch (CB)
One of the summer's big signings at £13m from SC Freiburg and the German international is already looking a fine recruit with Leeds having quickly needed an alternative to Ben White. Found one. Photo by Shaun Botterill/Getty Images.
