Now that the transfer window has closed it’s time to take a look back at the month of January from a Leeds perspective. On the pitch, it couldn’t have got any worse really, Leeds failed to win a game and were knocked out of the FA Cup by Newport. We’re going to discount the thousands upon thousands of U23 signings and just take a look at what Leeds did to improve the first-team squad.
Laurens De Bock
The first move Leeds made was to bring in Belgian left-back Laurens De Bock from Club Brugge. Leeds have needed a left-back ever since Charlie Taylor left and finally we have one. I love Berardi but it’s extremely noticeable the difference when you have a naturally left-sided player in their correct position. Although would Leeds have made that move if Ayling didn’t go down with an injury? Maybe not.
I’m a fan of De Bock, he’s extremely solid defensively and adds another element to our attack that we were lacking earlier this season. In saying that, it’d be nice for us to win a game with him in the side… Not that it’s his fault or anything.
