Steve Evans confirms how many new players he wants to add at Leeds United

Elland Road

Leeds United have started the season in poor form, and currently sit in 17th place in the Championship.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has told LUTV that he wants to bring in up to three players on loan over the coming weeks. 

The Whites have already started making enquiries over potential transfer targets, with the Yorkshire Evening Post reporting that a Premier League goalkeeper is high on the club's wish list.

And Evans claims that he needs to make further additions to Leeds' squad to make sure it is one which can play in his desired style. 

"We're asking people if players are available - whether that be on loan, or on loan with a view to a permanent signing," he said. 

"But I'm not going to be bringing players to Thorp Arch who are no better than what we've got. I won't be insulting to Leeds supporters.

"This is a team which has been put together by other coaches, but it's not a Steve Evans team. We'll add two or three players, hopefully, before the window shuts in November."

Leeds spent big in the previous transfer window, but Evans evidently feels that there are still gaps in his squad which need to be addressed.

The Yorkshire side have struggled over the early part of the campaign, and they still only have two wins to their name in the Championship.

With added quality incoming, the current squad will be under pressure to start improving, otherwise their places in the team could come under threat.

Leeds' next match comes against Blackburn Rovers on Thursday, where they will be hoping to pick up their first three-point haul of the season at Elland Road.
