Uwe Rosler has made great strides in building a squad of his own, and more arrivals could yet follow.
Leeds United executive director Adam Pearson has revealed in the Yorkshire Evening Post that the club may still be active in the transfer market this summer.
Yesterday saw the arrival of former Brentford winger Stuart Dallas, as announced on the club’s official website, and the departure of Steve Morison – also officially announced on lufc.com – but more business could be in the offing.
Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Pearson said: “There’s possibly one more to come and maybe a loan deal as well, just to give us a bit of strength in the centre of midfield.”
The capture of Dallas plugs an important gap - with a left-winger critical for Uwe Rosler to implement his 4-3-3 system - but the recent losses of Luke Murphy and Tommaso Bianchi to injury mean cover in central midfield is desirable.
Pearson hasn’t closed the door on further additions higher up the pitch however, adding: “We’re still looking. Whether that’s a wide player or not remains to be seen.”
While Dallas could prove to be one of the signings of the summer, complacency needs to be avoided and Pearson’s latest comments hint at a determination and proactive approach that will be critical if a Premier League return is to materialise in the near future.
With the Championship opener against Burnley just three days away, the Whites look in good shape and remain well positioned to be next season’s dark horses.
