Leeds United fans believe that a player who starred against them for Brentford on Saturday is exactly what is needed at Elland Road.

Leeds slumped to their sixth defeat in seven Championship outings at Griffin Park, shipping late goals to Yoann Barbet and Ryan Woods, after Ezgjan Alioski had cancelled out Neal Maupay's first-half opener for the hosts.

And it was one of those who appears to have caught the eye, after showing up Leeds' own midfielders.

Here's what the Elland Road faithful are saying about Woods.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Woods' goal was his first of the season and is not something he is usually renowned for, preferring instead to go about his business quietly - and effectively - in front of the back four.

It's a role for which Leeds have few competent options at present, however Woods has not been short of admirers these past few campaigns and could be difficult to obtain.

The 23-year-old, who has also played full-back before now, also signed a new deal until 2020 last August.

Would a player like Woods fix Leeds' problems?
