Steve Evans comments on Leeds United transfer activity

Elland Road East Stand

Leeds boss Steve Evans is doing his research with regard to potential signings, with Sheffield Wednesday players among those on his radar.

Leeds United boss Steve Evans has told the Yorkshire Evening Post he continues to do his research on potential signings, in case he is kept on as head coach.

Evans hopes to soon learn his fate with a board meeting taking place today (Wednesday) which could go some way to determining who is in charge next season.

Over the last few days Evans has been travelling to various games to watch players, and while the threat of the axe hangs over him, he is staying positive.

He said: "I’ve been getting to as many games as I can, looking at players and seeing if there’s anything out there that we might be able to take advantage of.

"If you look at the teams in the play-offs, if they go up then some of their players might be told to move on but they’d be wanted by plenty of managers in the Championship. I’m keeping myself on top of all that."

Evans is ensuring he is prepared in the eventuality owner Massimo Cellino gives him the green light to stay, and presents him with a figurative pot of money to spend.

He has previously spoken confidently about being able to lead a promotion charge, but will need to add to the squad to be able to do so.

Games listed which Evans attended include Sheffield Wednesday v Brighton, Hibernian v Falkirk, and an unspecified match in France.

His comments indicate he is targeting players with Championship experience, and there might well be talented players at Sheffield Wednesday, in the play-off final, who he could seek to add if they go up.
