Martyn Glover comments on potential problem with transfers at Leeds United

Leeds United's head of recruitment has suggested what's important about any player who moves to Elland Road this summer.

Leeds United’s new head of recruitment told BBC Radio Leeds that he doesn’t see the number of people involved in the transfer process at the club as a problem.

Martyn Glover suggested that himself, along with Adam Pearson, Massimo Cellino and head coach Uwe Rosler will all have an input in the type of players that the club goes after this summer, but stressed an important theme with any new arrival.

“Yes I think so, it's key. Everyone will have their own opinions, which is nice and I think it's important that we share those opinions and it's a debate as we no doubt go along,” he said.

“At the end of the day it's Uwe Rosler who picks the players on a Saturday or a Tuesday and they have to fit in with the way he wants to play and what he wants within his team.”

Too many cooks can spoil the broth but in this case, Glover sees the situation as a productive collaboration, rather than something which could impact on the club negatively in the transfer market.

It is encouraging that it seems like Rosler is being given the chance to make his case in terms of needing players who fit into the style of football that he wants to play.

It would be a case of poor communication if Rosler’s requests were overlooked, because he’s the man who dictates the style of the team and the way the players fit into his philosophy.

Two encouraging signings have been made in the form of Charlie Horton from Cardiff and Lee Erwin from Motherwell and hopefully there will be more of the same in the coming weeks, giving Leeds a better chance of hitting the ground running.
