Leeds youngster Charlie Taylor hails the club's work in the transfer market

The summer has proven to be an unusually fruitful time for the Yorkshire outfit.

Speaking in an interview with LUTV, which was aired this week, the 21-year-old credited the club for overseeing one of the best transfer windows for the Whites in recent memory.

"I think it's been a great transfer window for us," Taylor said. "Some of the signings we've brought in - with Woody (Chris Wood), bringing Sol (Bamba) back, Tom (Adeyemi) and Stuey (Stuart Dallas)... there's been a lot of great signings."

All four of the names mentioned by Taylor have made significant contributions to Leeds' cause already, and have affirmed themselves as starting figures in Uwe Rosler's preferred eleven.

Adding to his praise of Leeds' work throughout the summer period, Taylor added: "No-one has really left (either), so it's been a really positive transfer window for us."

Despite coming in for plenty of criticism throughout his relatively short reign as the Leeds United President, few can take issue with the work of Massimo Cellino's regime during the most recent transfer period.

The Italian owner has overseen a sizable investment in the playing squad at Elland Road, all the while ensuring that the club have held on to their most prized, and lucrative, group of homegrown stars.

And at a club that has been characterised by its lack of muscle in the transfer market since leaving the Premier League in the early 2000's, Taylor isn't the first, and won't be the last, to give credit to the current regime this summer.
