Embargo lifted: Will this be Leeds United's exciting team next season?

Leeds United could benefit with the transfer embargo restrictions removed from the club.

Leeds United confirmed on the club’s official website that the transfer embargo, which has been hanging over the head of the side has now been lifted.

Leeds are now free to go about their business without any restrictions over the players they can buy or sell, which transforms the options facing manager Neil Redfearn, or whoever is appointed by Massimo Cellino to replace him.

The Daily Star recently released a list of apparent targets that Redfearn had asked Cellino to sign and it will be interesting to see if there are some investments made in higher profile and more experienced players for next season.

The problem Redfearn faces if he stays on as the club’s manager is getting that extra experience into the team, while continuing to nurture the younger players who have formed the backbone for the team’s success over the past ten months.

Stoke’s Charlie Adam was mentioned as a target in the Daily Star’s report, with transfermarkt claiming he’s got a year left to run on his current deal, with the same paper also suggesting Paul Robinson could end up back at the club.

Tom Ince has also been mentioned as a midfield target, with Chesterfield’s Tendayi Darikwa a lower profile player linked with the club by The Sun in the gossip section of Team Talk.

If whoever is in charge of transfers at Elland Road makes the right decisions, there’s every reason to believe that Leeds will be one of the teams competing for promotion into the Premier League next season.

Here is the possible team for next season.

Robinson, Darikwa, Bellusci, Cooper, Taylor, Byram, Cook, Adam, Mowatt, Taylor, Antenucci
