Neil Redfearn declares himself pleased with new signings, says Sol Bamba is set for Leeds United debut

The Ivorian defender looks set to start against Huddersfield this weekend.

Leeds United take on Huddersfield Town this weekend in something of a Yorkshire Derby and go into the game full of confidence after their most recent performance against Bournemouth.

Neil Redfearn's men defeated the high-flying Championship leaders 1-0 last week thanks to a great goal from in form midfielder Luke Murphy. Now the gaffer has been speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of the Yorkshire Derby.

Since then Leeds have had a little break. Being out of the FA Cup after defeat to Sunderland has its perks and Redfearn says the break has given the players a chance to rest.

Not only that, but it gave him and the Leeds hierarchy the chance to finally make some additions to the team. This week the club confirmed the loan arrivals of Sol Bamba and Granddi Ngoyi from Italian outfit Palermo.

The two players are expected to feature this weekend and Redfearn has said he is pleased with what he has seen from his new recruits so far. He also confirmed that Bamba should be involved on Saturday. With Giuseppe Bellusci suspended he is rumoured to be in line for a start, which Redfearn did not rule out.

As for future additions, Redfearn is also not ruling anything out.

The club may have had a recent lift in form but Redfearn knows that more is needed if they are to continue moving away from the Championship drop zone.
