More good news for Leeds United as transfer embargo is lifted

It has been quite a week for Leeds United and the positive news keeps on coming.

Leeds United fans have got used to bad news when it comes to their club, but just a day after the prodigiously gifted midfielder Lewis Cook signed a new two-year contract at Elland Road, there has been even more good news.

As reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds have seen their transfer embargo lifted, allowing them to sign new players this summer.

The punishment was put in place back in January after Leeds were deemed to have breached Financial Fair Play rules.

However, it is now being reported that the decision was made last week to lift the embargo and that the club have been informed that they do not need to stick to free signings and players on wages of less than £12,000-a-week.

The news has come at the perfect time, with owner Massimo Cellino and manager Neil Redfearn no doubt keen to build on their talented young squad and bring in effective new additions.

It also means there is now more chance Leeds can sign impressive loanee Sol Bamba on a permanent deal if they so wish.

Leeds may have finished this season in 15th place but they showed they have a vast array of exciting young talents coming through the ranks; and with the right additions this summer, who knows what the next campaign could bring?
