With yesterday’s news that manager Marcelo Bielsa had agreed to the second year at Leeds United to end all the speculation and doubt about the Argentine’s future, for most fans it’s now all eyes to the transfer window and the strengthening that we all know we need to make to ensure next year ends in success and not disappointment like the 2018/19 campaign.
With owner and Chairman Andrea Radrizzani talking about a difficult summer when it comes to spending, the need to balance the books and everything, Bielsa has clearly been given some assurances and Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay has said that we plan on using the Premier League loan market again.
the club will go heavy on Premier League loans and Bielsa appears to be happy with that.

Makes perfect sense really to me, and most fans reacting on social media seem to appreciate that fact as well as there is less risk involved and although there does seem to be legs in Jack Harrison’s return from Manchester City (another loan not a permanent deal) we’ll have to see who else we look to tempt to Elland Road.
Add the expected 1-3 key loans to maybe 1-3 free agents and more doable transfer deals, with the expectation of some leaving, we should be better stocked than we were this season once injuries hit.
