Leeds United COO promises two signings next week, and possibly more

Leeds United's chief executive officer says there will be more signings to come.

It has been a very eventful week at Leeds United. They have secured their first signing, their owner has been forced to step down temporarily, and they won their first game in nine matches in all competitions.

Now their new chief executive officer Matt Child has confirmed there will be more additions to follow Sol Bamba, speaking to BBC Radio Leeds.

Bamba signed from Palermo on loan, the club confirmed on Friday, and Child says he won't be the only addition.

He said: "Yeah absolutely we all have a healthy dialogue with Mr Cellino. We will be bringing in a couple of signings in early next week.

"I'm not sure if that's where it's going to stop. There will be conversations, it's positive, we're going to strengthen the squad."

Leeds owner Cellino is back in April, pending no more sanctions from the Football League.

One of the expected signings is Bamba's Palermo teammate, Granddi Ngoyi, who Leeds sporting director pictured in a tweet sent on Thursday alongside Sol Bamba, with a simple message reading 'Good luck!.'

Cellino had warned via the Yorkshire Evening Post last week that it may be more difficult to bring in players if he lost his appeal, but his fears appear to be unfounded.

Child went onto reassure fans that no one person had authority to sell the club's young players if a big bid came in, adding Leeds were not interested in cashing in on their young talent.
