The winter window was always anticipated to be a quiet one for the Whites and that’s exactly how it’s turned out so far with no new signing through the door.

Indeed, the only movement has been the loan exits of Jordan Stevens, Ryan Edmondson and Robbie Gotts, who joined Bradford City, Northampton Town and Salford City, respectively.

Speculation surrounding Wigan Athletic starlet Sean McGurk hit the headlines late last week after the League One club’s administrators admitted they had rejected an offer from an unnamed Premier League club.

McGurk, 17, is a player director of football Victor Orta has tracked and even made an enquriy about the midfielder last week, as reported by the YEP.

However, The Sun believes Leeds could revisit a move for McGurk in order to avoid a tribunal. Wigan would be entitled to compensation, despite him becoming a free agent.

Meanwhile, reported Leeds target Erick Pulgar will only be allowed to leave Fiorentina if a replacement is found first.

Corriere Fiorentino has reported the Whites’ apparent interest for most of the month, though it seems very unlikely he’ll be moving to Elland Road.
