Leeds United director Adam Pearson has explained how many new player he feels the club still need to target.

Leeds United director Adam Pearson has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he’s confident the club can progress when the Championship returns this August.

Pearson has suggested that the team is looking strong, bar a few necessary additions in the transfer market, and has also praised the way that manager Uwe Rosler has adapted to the key personnel changes, which have been occurring at Elland Road.

“It’s a good solid start and we need three or four more proven players to come in and then I think we have got a chance of competing,” he told the YEP.

“The team looks really strong and knows want they want and are pretty determined to do it in the right way.”

“I think Uwe and Martyn are working really well together on the recruitment and Rob Kelly and Richard Hartis are working well at Thorp Arch to try and make some changes for when the team get back, so they can visibly see a new culture and start.”

Where are players still needed?

Rosler will be keen to back up the recent signings of goalkeeper Charlie Horton and striker Lee Erwin.

There’s arguably a need for a new centre back, an experienced central midfield, an exciting winger and potentially another striker, with pace and venom plus the intention to have a 20 goal season for the club.

What’s important with regards to transfers is that Leeds don’t panic because they are not going to snap up the three or four proven players quickly.

Will the backroom harmony last?

There’s no reason to believe that the way things are currently working behind the scenes at the club, can’t be prolonged.

As long as there is complete clarity over the roles that each person is responsible for and the idea that key decisions must benefit the team, there’s no reason for there to be a problem developing in terms of the club’s backroom staff.

Long may it continue.
