According to a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United are aiming to sign a striker in the January transfer window.

Massimo Cellino is set to back Garry Monk with funds in the new year, as Leeds look to add quality to their squad.

The Whites have moved into promotion contention after a strong run of form has pushed them to the outskirts of the Championship play offs.

Leeds are currently in seventh place in the second tier table, and Monk wants to add more depth to his team to give them the best chance of earning promotion.

The YEP believe that Leeds are aiming to tie down many of their loan players, but Monk also intends to search for another forward.

Leeds wanted to add another striker back in the summer transfer window, but they failed to get a deal over the line.

The Whites have Chris Wood and Marcus Antonsson currently competing for a striking place, but Monk would like to add another goalscorer to his squad.

Leeds have scored 19 goals in their first 17 Championship matches so far this campaign.
