I think these fans might be getting a little ahead of themselves.

Talking about transfers in the summer, even at this stage of the season is nothing new or exciting, just take a look at the story surrounding Kalvin Philips at the weekend. However, when you add the little caveat of promotion into the mix, then you’re starting to get into dangerous territory.

As Phil Hay revealed during a ‘mailbag’ section on The Athletic this past weekend, Leeds United have got a number of transfers and fees lined up for the summer, including the likes of Helder Costa for around £15m and Jean-Kevin Augustin for around £17m. In addition, they also hold various options for players such as Jack Harrison and Illan Meslier at a combined fee of around £13m, bringing their total outlay to around £45m already.

Where does Orta need to focus this summer?

And this talk has created quite a stir amongst the Leeds fanbase, with a lot of them discussing whether or not these deals are going to be good value for money, or indeed how they should attack the rest of the January transfer window, and it led to some rather interesting comments.

Let’s just save all this talk until we know what division we’re in next season, shall we?
