Report: Leeds United boss Thomas Christiansen plans to bring in two new centre-backs

Thomas Christiansen

Leeds United currently have just two centre-backs available to them.

According to a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United still want to sign two more centre-backs this summer.

Thomas Christiansen has confirmed to the YEP that Leeds are looking for more new additions.

And centre-backs are believed to be high up on the Danish boss’s list of priorities.

Leeds currently only have two senior options available to them to play in the centre of defence, with Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper the only natural centre-backs in their current squad.

Leeds realise that centre-back is a particular area of weakness though, and their focus is on strengthening their backline now.

Leeds have already brought in a range of new players, but most their additions so far have bolstered their midfield options.

Leeds now want to make sure they are solid at the back, as they head into the new campaign.

And two new centre-backs are said to be on Christiansen’s shopping list, as the Whites boss looks to shape his squad.

Leeds kick off their season with a match against Bolton Wanderers at the Macron Stadium in August.
