As Jack Harrison returns to Man City following the end of his loan spell and Pablo Hernandez increasingly shows signs that whilst he still holds obvious quality, the 50 game nature of the Championship season maybe be just too physically demanding for a player who is entering the latter stages of his career.
In terms of wide options this limits Leeds, with just the young and excellent Jack Clarke, amongst others such as Ezgjan Alioski who was converted to a left-back towards the end of the season. It wouldn’t be at all surprising to see Leeds look to strengthen in this department.
The local media in Portsmouth has reported that Leeds are one of a number of Championship clubs taking a look at Pompey’s 15 goal and 8 assist winger Jamal Lowe.
The 24 year old is predominantly a right-winger but can also play on the left if required and has had an electric 2018-’19 season featuring 55 times in all competitions. Starting at Barnet before playing for a host of lower league clubs, Jamal was picked up by Portsmouth from Hampton & Richmond Borough in the National League South.
It must be said that there has been an obvious lack of goals and finishing capability from Leeds’ usual wingers this season, see Harrison and Alioski, and so this move would certainly be both a logical and positive one from Leeds. Little is known about what sort of deal could be formed yet but it is one that Leeds should undoubtedly be looking to press on with.
