Will this be Leeds United's first choice XI on February 1?

The Leeds United first team could feature a couple of new faces by the start of next month.

Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn is in one of the most difficult positions of any manager in the Football League at the moment.

The boss has already discussed the need for changes to his squad, but his hands are tied in terms of the sort of players he can attract in the transfer market.

He’s been open about the fact Leeds have a current recruiting system and while he may want more Championship experience in his starting line-up, he may not get it.

Redfearn has no choice but to trust owner Massimo Cellino and his colleagues to listen to him and find him the right players, who can help the side lift themselves up the Championship table and away from the relegation places.

Leeds are consistently linked with talented players in the Italian media but there have also been some signs this week that Redfearn is being quizzed over who he wants at the club, with the name of an ex-favourite coming up.

We’ve had an attempt at naming Redfearn’s first choice side at the end of the transfer window. Could the following be the first choice Leeds United XI on February 1?

Silvestri, Byram, Cooper, Del Fabro, Warnock, N’Goyi, Bianchi, Mowatt, Cook, Antenucci, Becchio
