Steve Evans gives clear indication about his transfer wish

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans suggests that he wants to sign more players in the January transfer window.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has told The Yorkshire Post that he wants to make more signings in the January transfer window.

Evans has also revealed that he would be disappointed if Leeds fail to add to their squad between now and the end of the window.

However, the Scotsman has made it clear that he has the support of club chairman Massimo Cellino.

“One hundred per cent I’ve been supported by the president,” Evans told The Yorkshire Post. “There’s no question of that.

"Would I be disappointed if we don’t add from now? Yes. But have I been backed and are we trying to get the players in who I’ve given on a sheet of paper? Yes we are.

“I’m a supporter too so the same level of disappointment with them would be the same with me. I’m under no illusions that I have to win matches as manager. Signing good players gives me an opportunity to do that.”

Leeds have signed three players on permanent deals so far in the January transfer window.

Midfielder Toumani Diagouraga has arrived from Championship rivals Brentford, while Jack McKay (forward) and Paul McKay (defender) have moved from Doncaster Rovers.

Liam Bridcutt’s loan deal has been extended until the end of the season, while Mustapha Carayol has moved from Championship rivals Middlesbrough on loan until the summer.

It seems that Evans wants to add more players to his squad, but the question is for what.

Leeds are unlikely to finish in the Championship playoffs, and the current squad is good enough to stave off relegation to League One at the end of the season.

Do Leeds really need more players?
