Leeds United boss Steve Evans hints more signings could follow Liam Bridcutt into Elland Road

Leeds United are reportedly set to sign Liam Bridcutt on loan from Sunderland.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has admitted to Radio Yorkshire that his side still need more additions.

The Whites are set to sign up Liam Bridcutt from Sunderland on loan in the near future, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

However, Evans has suggested that Leeds may continue to be active, even after signing the midfielder, as he is not concerned about any selection dilemmas that could be caused by the increase in quality and numbers.

“You never have headaches,” he said. “You have good options and good choices and we need some other options.

“That’s not to discredit anyone here, but in reality, for the Championship, we have a very small squad. We have to continually make representations to Mr. Cellino to say can we strengthen, can we do this and can we do that? It’s my job as manager to ask those questions.”

Bridcutt’s arrival at Leeds should strengthen Evans’ options in the middle of the park, but there is no guarantee that the defensive midfielder will walk straight into the starting line-up.

Leeds were impressive against Cardiff City in their 1-0 win on Tuesday night, with Luke Murphy putting in a decent display.

Murphy looked the most likely player to be replaced by Bridcutt, but he will feel hard done by if his place is taken by the Sunderland man at the weekend.

Leeds face Huddersfield Town on Saturday, and a win over their West Yorkshire rivals could take them up to as high as 13th in the Championship table.
