Uwe Rosler keen to use the loan market at Leeds United

The Leeds head coach has been discussing the club's transfer business.

Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler is aiming to tap into the loan market ahead of the transfer deadline, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Indeed, the German says he is 'pretty relaxed' about bringing any further new signings to Yorkshire - especially due to the loan window.

And it sounds as though the Leeds boss is looking to use loans more than he is permanent recruits from hereon in, with Chris Wood, Tom Adeyemi and Stuart Dallas already being brought in this summer on a full-time basis.

Rosler is quoted as telling reporters: "We also have the loan window that we can tap into. At the moment, it is going fine but we are always on the look out to improve our squad.

"There are still two weeks until the transfer window closes. With the loan window as well, I am pretty relaxed about the situation."

Mixed success

Last season, of course, Leeds enjoyed mixed success in the loan market. Sol Bamba was their best loanee and duly moved to Elland Road on a permanent deal thereafter.

But the likes of Granddi Ngoyi and Edgar Cani are the biggest examples of where the loan market can go wrong. Adryan, too, was ultimately a failed Leeds experiment.

The difference, of course, is that these are all players loaned in from abroad. Having worked in England before, Rosler may well be able to look at domestic loan players, while head of recruitment Martyn Glover's extensive contact book should also help in that regard.
