Sol Bamba comments on Leeds United's top six chances, new signings

Sol Bamba is pleased with Leeds United's recent form.

Leeds United defender Sol Bamba says if the club can continue their recent form then they can reach the top six.

Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds he was keen to express that there is a long way to go in the Championship this season, and the squad are not getting carried away by any stretch.

He said: "We definitely want to be in the top six, and if we continue [like this] that's where we are going to be, but it's too early to talk about that, there's a lot of games to play, we are taking it one game at a time."

Leeds United are now unbeaten in their last six matches, going through December without a loss - a month in which they did not win a single game last season.

Their first game of 2016 is a home fixture with MK Dons, before an FA Cup revenge game against Neil Redfearn's Rotherham United, who caused an upset at Elland Road earlier this season.

Before their unbeaten run, Leeds had slipped as low as 19th in the table, but are now up to 12th, nine points off the play-off places, and 10 clear of the relegation zone.

With the transfer window about to open, Leeds are likely to bring in one or two new faces, and club captain Bamba welcomes the prospect of the squad being reinforced.

He said: "If a player is available and we can afford it, I think the manager will be looking to do that, if you want to do well in the division you have to have a good squad, if we can bring some additions in it will be good."
