Report: Steve Evans wants Leeds United to sign a centre back

Elland Road Revie Stand

Leeds United are set to be active in the January transfer window.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Steve Evans feels that signing a centre-back in January for Leeds United will be important.

Leeds have moved up the Championship table since Evans took charge back in October, and their recent form has raised hope of them making it into the top six.

The Whites are currently six points away from the play offs, and Evans has repeatedly stressed his desire to allow Leeds fans to dream.

To have any chance of promotion, Evans realises that Leeds will have to invest in their squad, and a centre-back is said to be high up on his wishlist.

Leeds currently have the likes of Sol Bamba, Liam Cooper, Scott Wootton and Giuseppe Bellusci available to them to play in the heart of their defence, but Evans still wants to increase his options.

The 53-year-old boss has already confirmed to the YEP that Leeds are in discussions with Premier League clubs, ahead of the January transfer window.

Evans has made one signing since taking charge at Elland Road, with Liam Bridcutt joining the Yorkshire side from Sunderland on loan.
