Former Leeds United man Danny Mills tips Whites to sign three players ‘maximum’

Speaking to Football Insider, Mills said he only expects Leeds United to sign up to “only three signings maximum”.

Asked if he would welcome the return to Elland Road of recently relegated Bournemouth man Lewis Cook, Mills Explained: "“I would like to see him back at Leeds because he is a quality player.

“His opportunities were pretty limited at Bournemouth. Sometimes it is difficult to come back and they all say ‘never go back’ but on occasion it has worked out for players. He was young when he left Leeds so there is no reason why he couldn’t come back

“But I am not convinced that Leeds are going to do an awful lot in the transfer market because Bielsa likes a small tight squad. He will not want anybody to leave, that will be very important.

“I think they will add two or three players maximum. I do not think there will be an influx like everybody thought there would be despite all of the money that is now available.”
