Steve Evans responds when asked about possible reunion with Lewis Grabban at Leeds

Steve Evans says striker Lewis Grabban is 'outstanding'.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has been asked by the Yorkshire Post whether a reunion with Lewis Grabban could be on the cards - and the Scot didn't rule out the possibility of a deal.

Evans saw his Leeds side beat Wycombe Wanderers 2-0 in a friendly on Friday night, as goals from Lee Erwin and Sam Byram gave the Whites a win at Adams Park.

After three straight wins without conceding a goal if you include that Wycombe friendly, Evans is making strides with this Leeds team - and he takes on his former club Rotherham United in Leeds' next game.

Ahead of that Yorkshire clash, Evans is looking to add some loan signings to his squad, with another striker at the top of his wishlist.

Chris Wood and Mirco Antenucci are viable first choice options for now, but Souleymane Doukara and the aforementioned Erwin haven't had much of an impact.

Now, the Yorkshire Post have asked Evans whether a move to reunite with Norwich City ace Lewis Grabban could be a possibility - and Evans didn't rule out the possibility of moving for him or his Norwich team-mate Kyle Lafferty, given that neither have played much this term.

"You never have enough outstanding strikers," said Evans. "The players you’ve just mentioned, Kyle Lafferty and Lewis Grabban, who I managed at Rotherham, these players are outstanding strikers. We’ve got some decent players here. The boy Antenucci was sat on the bench tonight and he’s a goalscorer," he added.

Grabban, 27, worked with Evans at Rotherham, with his pace troubling defences wherever he goes. A great spell with Bournemouth led to his move to Norwich, but he is well down the pecking order at Carrow Road - and he would certainly offer something different to the Leeds front line if Evans can secure a reunion.
