Should Christiansen bring former player Nektarios Alexandrou to Leeds as Charlie Taylor's replacement?

Leeds United have a new manager and now their focus turns to summer signings.

Following the news that Thomas Christiansen has been appointed as Garry Monk's successor at Leeds United, talk has inevitably turned to which new players could potentially arrive at Elland Road this summer.

Given that Christiansen was previously employed by APOEL Nicosia, a quick look at their current squad sees some obvious names stand out, not least that of Nektarios Alexandrou.

He may be 33, but there are two very good reasons for Leeds to seriously consider the Greek defender.

Firstly, he is a left-back by trade, and he could be the ideal replacement for Charlie Taylor, competing with Gaetano Berardi for a starting spot, and secondly, he was Christiansen's captain at APOEL for the first half of last season.

He fell out of favour in the second half of the campaign, so there is no guarantee the new Leeds manager will bring him to Elland Road.  Yet with the ability to fill an obvious hole in the squad next season and with the leadership qualities needed to help the Whites secure promotion, his name should certainly be in the mix.

Alexandrou has featured 221 times for APOEL to date, scoring 14 goals and providing six assists in the process, and it will be interesting to see if the new Leeds boss sees the 37-capped Cypriot international as a potential addition once he has his feet under the table at Elland Road.
