Steve Evans explains how he has received an unusual transfer boost at Leeds

Steve Evans claims isn't used to managing such a desirable club.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has told LUTV that managing a club that any player would love to play for is unusual for him.

Evans, 52, became Leeds boss last week following the departure of Uwe Rosler,and has opened his career at Elland Road with two draws, away at Fulham and Bolton respectively.

Now, the Scot is preparing for his first home game, with Blackburn Rovers visiting Elland Road on Thursday night, with Leeds now seven months without a home victory.

Evans will be looking for additions at some point in the near future, and admits he is in an unusual situation as he prepares to enter the transfer market for the first time as Leeds boss.

Speaking to LUTV ahead of the Blackburn game, Evans confirmed that he is looking for new signings, but that the lure of playing for Leeds is different to anything he has experienced before.

Having previously managed Rotherham United and Crawley Town, Evans admits it's 'unusual' for him to have players actively wanting to sign for Leeds, rather than having to convince players to sign as he has at previous clubs - handing him a major boost in the transfer market.

"It's a bit unusual for me, it was always about...first and foremost, the question would always be 'would a player want to come to Rotherham or Crawley?' - that would be the first question," said Evans. "You have to almost be right in the way you go and ask those questions, because there's a certain mentality of a player."

"I don't have that here. it's terrific - do you want to come to Leeds United? They're in the car aren't they? So the first thing is to identify them. The harder thing is to get, when you want to improve what you've got in the Championship, better than what you have," he added.

Goalkeeper, centre back and centre forward are just three areas Evans may look to strengthen for Leeds, but with just a matter of weeks left before the loan deadline closes for Football League clubs, he may have to move quickly to land his targets.
