Leeds United head coach Steve Evans wants to sign a striker in the January transfer window.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has revealed to The Yorkshire Evening Post that he is trying to sign a striker in the January transfer window.

Evans has also stated that he wants a striker who is capable enough to play on his own or in a front-two.

“I’d like another option,” the Scot told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “I’d prefer that can play that role on his own but also play in a two if he needs to.

“There’s a couple we’re trying to bring in and if we end up with two strikers in the door then great but if we end up with one of the two, I’ll be happy with that.”

Chris Wood, Mirco Antenucci and Souleymane Doukara are the three main strikers at Leeds.

Wood is injured at the moment and Doukara is largely seen as a player who comes off the substitutes’ bench.

Evans appears to have decided on the type of striker he wants, and one suspects that he already has names in mind.

Leeds are 13th in the Championship table at the moment with 32 points from 25 matches.

The West Yorkshire outfit are nine points behind Ipswich Town, who are currently sixth in the standings and occupy the final playoff spot.

The Whites will take on Rotherham United at Elland Road in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon.

Leeds will then face Ipswich away from home at Portman Road in the Championship.
