Jesse Marsch’s side continue to be active in the transfer market after their unbeaten start to the Premier League season following Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Southampton.

Leeds United still have just over two weeks remaining to complete more business in the summer transfer window with the new Premier League season now in full swing.

Jesse Marsch’s side kept up an unbeaten start to the campaign with a 2-2 draw at Southampton on Saturday to make it four points from a possible six so far.

The Whites had taken a 2-0 lead at St Mary’s with Rodrigo netting a brace in the opening 15 minutes of the second half but Joe Aribo and Kyle Walker-Peters scored to level the scores and rescue a point for the home side.

After the match, Marsch said: “Obviously we’re disappointed.

“It’s a terrible feeling to play so well and then have the game switch and then walk away with what feels less than one point.

“But that’s also I think, progress for us to be so disappointed with only a point and we also have to see through the trees a little bit and understand that the performance was quite good from an individual perspective and from the collective so we’re looking clear in every phase of the game for me and then on set pieces I think we’re very stable and also finding ways to be dangerous.

“For me, it’s always in my mind how to be glass half full, even in a moment like this.

“But the group is making progress. There’s no question and it’s great to see so many individuals playing at a high level.”

Away from the action on the pitch, United have been active in the transfer window the past few months and are still looking to get more business done.
