Leeds United boss Steve Evans admits phone calls already made regarding potential loan recruits

Leeds United East Stand

The Leeds boss is hopeful to bring in a couple of new recruits.

Leeds United boss Steve Evans will take his new team into their second game under his management this weekend as the club travel to Bolton to take on The Trotters at the Macron Stadium.

Ahead of the game there has been plenty of talk about the club potentially bringing in a new player or two to strengthen certain areas of the pitch.

Leeds have been tentatively linked with Richard Wright and Matt Derbyshire this week as the goalkeeper and striker positions look like areas that need strengthening, An experienced central defender and midfielder would also not be a bad shout. In his pre-Bolton press conference he has admitted the club are looking to bring in new players.

He even suggested a few phone calls had already gone in, as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post:

"We are looking at strengthening all over but the full assessment of the squad is not complete yet.

"I think we need to do something now. There's one or two bits I'd like to do.

"One or two phone calls have gone in. We need to do something."

The club already have Will Buckley and Tom Adeyemi on loan and with five spaces open in a matchday squad it is easy to see that Leeds are not fully utiilising the market in the best way possible.

The club are however wary of their wage structure and will not bring in anyone who will go out of their budget range.

But it will certainly please Leeds fans to know the club are looking at increasing their squad depth after a difficult start to the season.
