Danny Mills in action for Leeds

Leeds United narrowly missed out on a place in the top six of the Championship this season. Leeds were in the running for a spot in the playoffs until the final weeks of the campaign.

The Whites probably overachieved this season, but there can be no doubt that they had a wonderful campaign, one of their best in years.

The Elland Road faithful will hope that the team kick on and aim to end up in the top six of the Championship yet again next season.

For Leeds to launch a successful challenge for the playoffs during the 2017-18 campaign, they will need to make a few good signings in the summer transfer window.

The Whites also have to retain some of their best players, such as Chris Wood, and hand manager Garry Monk a new contract.

Former Leeds defender Danny Mills has given his thoughts on what the club should do in the summer transfer window.

Mills, who is 39 years of age, has also suggested that the Whites should try to retain Kyle Bartley. The 25-year-old central defender played on loan for Leeds from Premier League outfit Swansea City this season.

"You don't need to add much if you can keep hold of what you've got," Mills told The Daily Star. "Leeds is still an attractive club in that division.

"You could sign a couple of forward players to support Chris Wood or players out wide with a bit more quality. There's a lack of experience, and strength and depth, that's possibly undone them this season.

"It's more about retaining the likes of Kyle Bartley as I think Paul Clement wants him back at Swansea."
