Leeds United interested in signing Joe Bryan, the Championship's best left-back

Elland Road

Leeds United transfer target Joe Bryan was statistically the best left-back in the Championship last season.

HITC have broken the news today that Leeds United have made a move for Bristol City’s Joe Bryan already this summer.

And if the Whites could bring the 23-year-old to Elland Road they would be signing the best left-back in the Championship last season.

According to Who Scored, Bryan was statistically better than any other left-back in the Championship over the course of the 2016/17 campaign.

Bryan was a virtual ever present for Bristol City last term, when he made 49 appearances across all competitions.

Leeds apparently were impressed by Bryan’s efficient performances, and now Thomas Christiansen wants to add the defender to his squad.

Leeds are currently without a natural left-back, following the departure of Charlie Taylor, but Gaetano Berardi has filled in there and looked comfortable before.

If Bryan was to sign for Leeds in the near future, he could become the Whites’ ninth signing of what has been a very busy summer transfer window to date.
