Steve Evans eyes imminent Leeds signings, claims Bundesliga offer, updates Lafferty situation

Leeds United

Leeds boss Steve Evans says the deal for Kyle Lafferty is 'drifting away'.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has told BBC Radio Leeds that he is looking to make signings imminently ahead of the trip to Ipswich Town on Tuesday night.

The Whites advanced into the fourth round of the FA Cup today, beating Rotherham United 2-0 at Elland Road in a comfortable victory, thanks to goals from new loan signing Mustapha Carayol and striker Souleymane Doukara.

Leeds are now eight games unbeaten in all competitions, and manager Evans is building something impressive at Elland Road right now.

After extending Liam Bridcutt's loan deal from Sunderland until the end of the season, Evans moved to sign Carayol on loan from Middlesbrough on Friday - and he's still searching for more new arrivals.

Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds, Evans admitted that he wants to bring in new signings before Tuesday's trip to take on Ipswich Town at Portman Road.

Evans also claims that Leeds have received offers totalling around £30m for players, with the likes of Sam Byram, Charlie Taylor, Lewis Cook and Alex Mowatt no doubt attracting interest - though Evans revealed that one offer surprisingly came from a German team.

"We're going to try and add to the group before Tuesday," said Evans. "Now, whether we can get things done...we know these things sometimes take a little bit of time. I've got some clear ideas, the president's aware of them, and he's working really hard for me. People probably don't see it, but I met with the president last night, and this football club is sitting on over £30m worth of offers for players - now that's just a fact. It's incredible."

"It's obviously all from the Premier League. One interestingly as well from the German Bundesliga. It's amazing that, when you've got good players, these top clubs find them."

Evans also gave an update on his pursuit of Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty, stating that his move for the Northern Irish international is drifting away, but has different targets as he looks to improve his options in the final third.

"I think it is drifting away. I had a long chat with Alex Neil, and I think they've got hopes that they're going to sell him. We've got different options, we're in the market for three or four signings," he added.
