UWE ROSLER says that Leeds United’s sights have now switched to adding some pacey recruits following the big-money acquisition of Chris Wood.

The New Zealander has become United’s fourth close-season arrival following the earlier signings of defender Sol Bamba, Scottish striker Lee Erwin and rookie keeper Charlie Horton.

An injection of pace is Rosler’s next aim, although the United head coach says he is in no rush to supplement his numbers.

Rosler said: “We go step by step (in recruitment). We are right on track and have already signed good players.

“We had good ones here, too. A few have surprised me in a positive way.

“But we would like to add one or two more in terms of needing pace in the team. (But) We are not in a rush and will see what happen.

“Getting the main striker sorted was crucial.”

Rosler is running the rule over former Manchester City full-back/winger Adam Drury on trial.

Drury, 21, has had previous loan spells at St Mirren and Burton Albion.
