Steve Evans' comments suggest incoming and outgoing transfers are imminent at Leeds United

Leeds United have drawn their opening two matches under new manager Steve Evans.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has suggested to BBC Radio Leeds that both incoming and outgoing transfers are imminent at Elland Road.

Evans has been quick to assess what is needed at Leeds, and he feels there are a number of areas in his squad which are in need of strengthening.

However, the former Rotherham United manager realises that he cannot simply add players to the group, and he has suggested that certain members of his team could also be shipped out in the near future. 

"We're overloaded in some areas in the team," he said. "We may be overloaded with players who won't play while I'm picking the team. We need to do something on that front, as you can't just keep adding players, and adding players, without moving some out. There may be some movement. 

"The Leeds supporters can rest assured that the key areas that aren't right, we're looking to strengthen in."

He went onto reiterate the point to LUTV, saying: "We are very quickly assessing the squad, and we are underloaded in some areas of the pitch. For me, in both areas of the pitch, we need to strengthen."

Leeds actually had a fairly busy summer, where they spent a fair amount of money, but Evans obviously feels that there is still work to do.

The Whites' results so far this season have also suggested that new additions will be needed if they are to start climbing up the Championship table.

Leeds have failed to win any of their last five matches, and they are currently just three points above the relegation zone.
