Uwe Rosler confirms Leeds United will bring goalkeeper in to replace injured Ross Turnbull

Leeds United will look to bring in a new goalkeeper.

Ross Turnbull was struck down by injury yesterday, and Uwe Rosler has told Leeds’ AudioBoo channel that he will look to bring in a new goalkeeper to replace the stopper.

When asked if he will look to bring a new goalkeeper in, Rosler said: “I think so, we have to. We got Charlie Horton in, but he was always meant to be in a learning curve with Under-21 football. I think we have to look into the goalkeeper situation, yes.”

Following Turnbull’s injury, Rosler is left with just two choices to call upon in his first-team, and only one who could be considered an actual senior player.

Marco Silvestri is undoubted first choice, whilst Charlie Horton is a youth player who was signed over the summer as nothing more than a development squad talent, who would occasionally train with the first-team.

Considering Silvestri has been struggling this season, and the fact that Rosler now has no back-up keeper to call upon, it is no surprise he is looking to bring new player in.

There are no indications whether that will be on a loan deal or a free agent signing, but it is clear that Rosler needs to act fast to ensure that his Leeds squad are back up to their full strength in depth in the coming days.
