Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler on loan market, says Stuart Dallas will be last permanent deal

Uwe Rosler

The German is all set to bring in the Northern Irish winger from former club Brentford.

Leeds United stunned Everton yesterday with a terrific 2-0 victory at Elland Road. Leeds look to have done some excellent business in the summer and the club are now on the verge of completing yet another new signing.

Leeds have been after a left-winger all summer, and Uwe Rosler is set to raid former club Brentford for Northern Ireland international Stuart Dallas.

The Yorkshire Evening Post are reporting that the deal will be completed next week, with a fee of over £1 million being mooted for the player.

New Leeds boss Rosler has also claimed that this will be Leeds’ last permanent signing of the summer.

He is quoted by The 72 as stating:

“I think in terms of permanent deals, when what we assume will go ahead goes ahead, then I think on permanent deals we are done.

However, he has confirmed that Leeds will be keeping an eye on the loan market this summer:

“Of course there is also a loan market which could also be attractive to us under certain circumstances.

“But (against Everton) we had a squad of 18 players who I consider first team players and that is not the biggest squad in the world.

“So we always have to have our eyes open and when we need to tap into the loan window then we can do. But there is no real need at this moment in time.”

For all the good recruiting Leeds have done they are certainly still slightly short in terms of squad depth and could certainly do with some more additions if they are to fight for promotion this campaign.

Plenty of Premier League clubs will have options available for a drop down in divisions and it sounds like Leeds will be there ready to swoop.
