Leeds United boss Steve Evans seems to rule out loan signings, end of Kyle Lafferty talk

Kyle Lafferty

Leeds' boss is hoping to look inwardly at the players he currently has.

The emergency loan window in the Championship is coming to a close and Leeds United have so far decided not to utilise the option.

This week Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty has again emerged as a potential candidate. The Northern Ireland international is desperate to get some first-team football under his belt prior to the European Championships in France this summer.

The Daily Mail reported today that Leeds were very keen on completing this deal.

In his press conference today however Steve Evans has seemingly distanced himself from any potential loan move this week.

The Leeds boss is quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post as stating his belief that he must look at the players he currently has at his disposal, before looking at the loan market:

"I'd be doing the boys here a disservice if I didn't look inwardly first."

That would surely rule out any move for Lafferty or indeed anyone else for that matter.

Leeds have recently welcomed back plenty of players back to full fitness and some of the fringe players, such as Jordan Botaka, are looking like being back in contention.

Leeds might indeed be better off saving their finances for the summer and making more permanent signings then bringing in temporary solutions at the moment.
