Steve Evans provides update on Leeds United's search for incoming transfers

Leeds United have been linked with Sunderland's Liam Bridcutt and Norwich City's Kyle Lafferty.

Steve Evans has told LUTV that he is just as frustrated as Leeds United supporters with his side’s lack of signings.

Evans had promised that Leeds would have fresh faces in before their next fixture against Rotherham United prior to the international break, but that now looks unlikely.

Leeds are looking to wrap up deals for Sunderland midfielder Liam Bridcutt and Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post, but it seems that both have hit stumbling blocks. 

However, Evans has confirmed that Leeds are also working on other targets – and he insists that new recruits will be signed up before the loan deadline passes on November 26.

“I’m as frustrated as our supporters,” he explained. “There’s deals on and deals off at the minute, but I have no doubt that we will strengthen before the deadline next Thursday. We have to!

"| have had many meetings with the president, and I have said we have to. I have given him a list of the key players I want to bring in and it’s not just the one at Norwich and the one at Sunderland. There’s other players along with those lads.

“I’ve always said that there is a lot of people that have to be happy for even a loan player to happen these days.”

Evans is yet to make a signing since taking over at Leeds, but he has consistently expressed on LUTV his desire to bring in two or three new faces.

The Whites have still managed to impress under Evans’ guidance despite their lack of new additions, and they have won back-to-back fixtures for the first time.

That gives them some much needed momentum to build on, as they head into a Championship fixture against Rotherham United at the weekend.
