Leeds United transfer rumours: Whites tipped to sign £25m-rated Brazil forward

Leeds United made it three Premier League wins in a row last night, as they defeat Southampton in a highly entertaining clash at St Mary's.

Goals from Patrick Bamford and Tyler Roberts saw the Whites claim a 2-0 win on the road, as both sides peppered the opposition goals with shots - 33 in total between them - throughout the game.

The result leaves Leeds sitting eighth in the Premier League table, giving them an outside chance of securing European football for next season, if other results go their way.

Speaking after the game, pundit Graeme Souness was full of praise for Marcelo Bielsa's side, and claimed: “They've been the best watch (in the Premier League this season) for me. They play a brand of football that you can't help but enjoy.

“There's an honesty about them, they are a young group that prior to this year you are thinking 'these are not Premier League players' but to a man they have stood up and looked like they have belonged in this league.

“Some of the football has been fantastic and I would go as far as to say that he would be my manager/coach of the year.

“The football that he has got this group of players playing defies logic when you look at where those players were before.”

Next up, Leeds bring their exceptional 2020/21 season to a close this weekend, when they take on already-relegated West Bromwich Albion at Elland Road, where there's set to be a carnival atmosphere as fans are welcomed back to the stadium.
