Leeds United transfer news: Whites target ex-Ligue 1 lethal striker, links with £40m man quashed
Leeds United are bracing themselves for a hectic couple of months when the transfer window opens next week, and will be looking to bring in quality new signings while also keeping hold of their key players.
The Whites stormed back to the Premier League last season, securing a top half finish by wowing fans and pundits alike with their high octane style of football - something they'll be looking to replicate in the 2021/22 campaign.
Meanwhile, Whites starlet Joe Gelhardt has been discussing his relationship with manager Marcelo Bielsa, and said: “I haven’t spoken to him in person, not one to one.
“But, as a player, when you’re on the bench, especially a young lad like me, you’ve just got to be patient.
“You’ve got to believe in whatever the manager’s got to say because he’s the one in charge. And, obviously, being the great manager he is, you’ve got to trust in him and trust the process.”
“I’m a player who likes to get on the ball, drop low, and try to dribble past a player. What the manager’s told me is I need to add more in-behind runs to my game – short, sharp, and more sprints.
“I’ve tried to take that on board as much as I can, and I’ve tried to implement it. He’s a great manager with young players so everything he says you’ve got to take it on board.”
