Leeds United have a host of wide options within their squad, but who deserve to be considered the first choices in Garry Monk's side?

For the first time in a long time, Leeds have a cluster of genuine wingers to pick from. However, with the season really beginning to reach the business end, is it really clear yet who Garry Monk's first choice wide-men should be?

The debate became much more complicated following the deadline day arrivals of Alfonso Pedraza and Mo Barrow, so who do you think should be Monk's preferred options? Before you get a chance to vote, here is a look at the main contenders...

Stuart Dallas

Stuart Dallas appears to be starting to hit form at just the right time, having contributed two goals in his last four games. He has probably not been as good as he was last term, having contributed just two assists compared to the six he provided last season. However, the Northern Irishman is perhaps the most reliable winger available, certainly from a defensive point of view.

Souleymane Doukara

Although traditionally a striker, Doukara has predominantly featured as a winger this season. On his day, few Championship full-backs seem capable of dealing with him, but he is also capable of going missing for long periods of the game.

Kemar Roofe

Kemar Roofe has arguably looked to be at his best when featuring in a more central role, but with Chris Wood and Pablo Hernandez performing so well, he has struggled for opportunities in those positions. He has the skill to make a big impact and has contributed five assists this term.

Hadi Sacko 

The 22-year-old has been incredibly exciting to watch at times this season. His pace and trickery has been causing defenders headaches for much of the campaign, but inconsistency has arguably been his main problem.

Mo Barrow

Mo Barrow is still awaiting a real chance to show what he can do following his January loan switch, having only made three substitute appearances thus far. His experience in the Premier League would certainly suggest that he could be hugely influential if Leeds are to secure promotion.

Alfonso Pedraza

Given his age and his lack of experience, Alfonso Pedraza is more of a wildcard for the Whites. He looked bright against Huddersfield and made some exciting runs during the early stages of the defeat to Cardiff. He looks like he could become a special player in the future, but are fans willing to give a loanee time to make mistakes and put in frustrating performances at such a crucial stage of the season?

So there are the main contenders but who should Monk's first-choices. Vote firstly for your preferred right winger, before casting your vote for your favoured option on the left wing...
