Charlie Taylor wants Leeds United to be active this summer

Leeds United defender Charlie Taylor is hoping to see new faces arrive at Elland Road in the near future.

Leeds United youngster Charlie Taylor has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he will welcome new additions to Elland Road over the summer.

Taylor has broken through into Leeds' team this season, but the academy graduate is not scared about the potential for increased competition being brought in during the upcoming transfer window.

To the contrary, he feels that Leeds need to make additions to ensure that they are challenging at the right end of the table next season, and he has encouraged the board to bring in added quality over the coming months.

"I don’t see why we can’t make a big challenge next season, with a few good signings," he said. "We’ve just got to try and look forward.”

Taylor's position in the team, if Neil Redfearn remains as manager, looks under little threat as he has been superb in his breakthrough year.

Taylor had a tough ask when he was required to fill in for Stephen Warnock, who left to join Derby County in January, but he has not looked overawed and has grown into the shirt.

It means that he will be one of the players Leeds build their team around next season and any increased quality is likely to be brought in in other areas.

Redfearn has already commented on his desire to sign a winger, while he could also be keen to bring in a centre-forward after the side's goalscoring problems this term.
