Leeds United 'will not gamble in January transfer window'

:Headline: Leeds United 'will not gamble in January transfer window':
Leeds United will not take any risks during the January transfer window in a bid to earn promotion to the Premier League, according to chief executive Angus Kinnear.
By , Senior Reporter | 2mo

Chief executive Angus Kinnear has insisted that Leeds United will not take any risks during the January transfer window.

The Yorkshire giants currently sit in second position in the Championship table, 10 points above third-placed Preston North End in the race for automatic promotion to the Premier League.

However, while hinting that they will be in the market for new players at the start of 2020, Kinnear has played down the chances of any big-money arrivals.

In the club's official matchday programme, Kinnear said: "As the festive schedule gathers pace the media's attention will turn to the January window and the frenzy of speculation around the hunt for the elusive 'season changing' player will intensify.

"While Victor's [Orta, director of football] scouting team are as close to the market as ever, we will prioritising not disrupting the stability of the existing squad versus gambling on any introductions.

"We believe the continuity that the current squad have in working with Marcelo [Bielsa} for 18 months is the cornerstone of the progress we have made to date and that the players' ability to adapt across positions and systems gives us the strength in depth required to see out the campaign."

Any incomings could depend on whether Jack Clarke and Eddie Nketiah - on loan from Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal respectively - return to their parent clubs after a lack of game time. body check tags ::
