One of Leeds’ more talked about transfer targets Steven Zuber, the Swiss winger has today joined VfB Stuttgart on loan until the end of the season, which has been confirmed by his parent club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.

Lewis Baker has also returned to Chelsea today, having his loan cut short due to his lack of playing time. This isn’t a big loss, he simply isn’t very good as he proved at both Leeds and Boro. However, this move leaves the squad even thinner that it already was. Apparently the midfielder will end up at Reading, according to Phil Hay. Is there a footballer more suited to Reading than Lewis Baker?
Reading is what the grapevine says.

We currently have three available central midfielders, Adam Forshaw, who isn’t blessed with good form at the minute, Matuesz Klich, who has hit a bit of a dry spell and Jamie Shackleton, who is currently being asked to play right back. Not ideal for a title-winning side, Jeff.
Despite the lack of transfer noise around Elland Road at the minute, don’t be surprised to see a keeper come in sooner rather than later, Bielsa has dropped enough hints about needing one now.
