Leeds United supporters grew sick and tired of their problem area last season at left-back, where a number of different players tried and failed in that position.

Laurens De Bock, Gaetano Berardi and Vurnon Anita flattered to deceive as the left-sided defender, while it was only academy graduate Tom Pearce who showed any promising signs in the closing months.

New Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa needs to find a settled backline if his side are to compete for promotion next season and the best option would be to sign a new left-back.

The Yorkshire giants should plot a cheeky move to sign Watford full-back Jose Holebas, as he could now face serious competition at Vicarage Road for his starting position.

Premier League side Watford confirmed the signing of defender Adam Masina on Monday afternoon from Bologna and the 24-year-old will hope to settle quickly in English football.

Leeds should use this news to make an approach for Holebas and tempt the Hornets into offloading the 38-time capped Greece international.

Holebas, 34, may be reaching towards the latter stages of his career, but would be a brilliant addition at Elland Road this summer.

He is an attack-minded left-back that managed 31 appearances across all competitions for Watford last term and could be a real force if he dropped down to the Championship.

Holebas' starting spot will surely now be under pressure from Premier League new boy Mesina and offering him a starting berth at Leeds is worth the punt.
