Leeds boss Steve Evans drops hint about three positions he wants to sign in

Leeds United could make a number of additions before the end of the January transfer window.

Steve Evans has told BBC Radio Leeds that he is still planning to make three more additions at Leeds United.

Evans has brought in Liam Bridcutt and Mustapha Carayol on loan deals from Sunderland and Middlesbrough respectively, while Toumani Diagouraga has signed permanently from Brentford.

However, the 53-year-old boss is still not entirely satisfied with his squad - and he wants to bring in a centre back, a winger and a striker over the coming days.

"I don’t think there’s any dispute, I would like to strengthen in the defensive area of the team, I would like to add a striker and I would like a winger, who can play on both sides of the pitch," he said. 

"We have Carayol in there and we have Dallas, but I would like someone in the door who could play on either side. We have one or two people in mind for that.

"We are limited in terms of strikers, and we are wanting to get some business done."

Leeds have been linked with Everton’s Aiden McGeady in the Daily Mail recently, who could fill the winger void.

Marcus Maddison of Peterborough United is another confirmed target - as HITC reported - who could fit that description.

Leeds' striker search, meanwhile, has been more quiet - but Evans has already suggested that he wants to keep the names he is searching for under wraps, as he did with Diagouraga.

Most of the funds that Leeds have to spend in January, have been raised by the sale of Sam Byram to West Ham United.
