Steve Evans confirms Leeds United want a winger

Leeds United East Stand

Steve Evans wants to add another three players at Leeds United in the January transfer window.

Steve Evans has told BBC Radio Leeds that Leeds United are attempting to sign a winger in the January transfer window.

Leeds have already made enquiries, as Evans looks to bolster his options, and it seems that addition of a wide man is high up on his wishlist.

And the 53-year-old boss says that Leeds will find out whether they have been successful in their pursuit of the unnamed player on Tuesday.

“We’ve got some good genuine targets that we want to get in the door,” he said. “Two or three players would be fantastic, as we would be getting some Bridcutt quality in.

“There’s a wide player we are looking at, and we’d like to bring him in. That’s gone to a chairman and a manager’s discussion on Tuesday [at the player’s current club]. We just need to be patient.”

Evans only addition at Leeds has been that of Liam Bridcutt, who he brought in on loan from Sunderland.

Bridcutt has been a huge success at Elland Road so far, and Evans will hope that whoever he brings in during the January window can have a similar impact.

Leeds have improved under the former Rotherham United boss’s stewardship, but if they are to make a genuine push for the play-offs they will have to progress even further.

As things stand, Leeds are currently in 13th place in the Championship table - nine points back from the play off spots.
