Leeds United could be bringing some new players to the club next month.

The emergency loan window may have only just closed but Leeds United manager Steve Evans does not have to wait much longer before he will again have the chance to strengthen his squad.

Recent loan addition Liam Bridcutt has impressed since arriving on loan at Elland Road from Sunderland. But following recent comments from Black Cats manager Sam Allardyce (published in the Chronicle) suggesting he could sell the midfielder permanently next month, could that be one of a few changes at the Whites in early 2016?

Kyle Lafferty would be a wonderful permanent addition up front, allowing Leeds manager Steve Evans to play 4-4-2 and give Chris Wood another strike partner – with Mirco Antenucci remaining an option from the bench – while Leeds’ lack of an experienced back-up goalkeeper could see Anders Lindegaard arrive from West Bromwich Albion.

After all, with Ben Foster soon to return from injury that would leave Lindegaard as third-choice at The Hawthorns, so could the side below be the one that turns out for Evans once January is out of the way?
