Leeds United boss Steve Evans should move for former Rotherham loanee Haris Vuckic

Newcastle Utd - Gate

The Newcastle United owned Slovenian is currently on loan at Wigan Athletic.

Leeds United are said to be in the market for plenty of players, with a number 10 one position they hope to strengthen.

Recently Leeds coach Steve Evans even told BBC Radio Leeds that the club would like to bring in such a player to link the midfield and attack in the mould of a Matej Vydra type player.

One potential option Leeds should surely consider is Newcastle United owned attacker Haris Vuckic.

The Slovenian international is a well known player to current Leeds boss Steve Evans. He had the player on loan from Newcastle at Rotherham United in the 2013-14 season. Vuckic played 26 times for The Millers that season, scoring four times, as they earned promotion to the Championship via the League One playoffs.

Vuckic went on to shine at Glasgow Rangers the following season but has struggled on loan at Wigan Athletic this term.

He has battled a niggling ankle problem and is currently warming the subs bench at the DW Stadium. His loan deal at Wigan is ironclad until the summer unless the Lactics decide to cancel the deal so this is not a potentially imminent switch.

But Leeds United need to start planning for next season as another campaign of mid-table obscurity sails by them.

Vuckic does not appear to have much of a chance of first-team football at Newcastle in the coming years and Leeds would represent a good opportunity for him to finally get his career going.
