Leeds boss Uwe Rosler comments on more Leeds signings, budget

Leeds United

Uwe Rosler has confirmed work is ongoing to bring more players to Leeds United.

New Leeds head coach Uwe Rosler has told BBC Radio Leeds that work is ongoing to make further signings.

With the calendar not yet reaching July, Leeds have already signed three players, goalkeeper Charlie Horton, striker Lee Erwin, and defender Sol Bamba.

Bamba was on loan last season and in many ways expected, or at least hoped for, while Erwin is the most notable of the earlier two additions with Horton set to be back-up for Marco Silvestri.

Rosler admitted that Leeds are not blessed with a big transfer budget and instead must make their signings count, ensuring they get value for money.

Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds, he said: "I think the club is looking very hard on recruitment side, that is all what I can say.

"We have not the biggest budget in the league as everybody knows. We want the right players for the right price for this football club, and we are delighted to get Sol in."

Takeaways

First of all it's positive for fans to have confirmed that Leeds' business is not yet over, and further new faces are expected.

Secondly there is money to spend, but clearly not a substantial amount. This means Leeds will continue to shop at the cheap end of the market, but will be able to do more than simply loan and bring in players on free transfers.

It also suggests cashing in on in-demand young players like Sam Byram is not being planned for, with the club confident of reaching their goals by keeping him around.
