Leeds United are not expected to be busy win the January transfer window.
Bielsa has suggested that Leeds could have a quiet window in the new year, as he is expecting it to be difficult to sign players.
“It will be very hard to add new players. But we will have four more players coming in January, Bamford, Brown, Berardi and Ayling,” he said.
“It’s only my opinion. The club can have a different opinion and I will take that into account.”
The comments have divided opinion around Elland Road, with Leeds fans having differing views.
While some Whites supporters feel that Bielsa needs to make additions to his squad, others are happy that he is not making changes.
As expected zero activity in January same division next season— CM (@Chris_Moulds1) November 8, 2018
Ask Fulham if it’s ever wise to sign a player in January ffs— Escape to Prague (@escapetoprague) November 8, 2018
When you have to start Dallas, you need additions. The squad is wafer thin at the back and on the wings. We've already seen how injuries to Hernandez have effected us.— Andy.ridge (@Andyridge2) November 8, 2018
I'm sure they won't push him to spend money. We will end up regretting this.— Dan (@POTUS048) November 8, 2018
recall Lewie Coyle, put Mallik Wilks around the first team, get them all up to speed. Play Ayling but use him as CB cover with Berardi, shouldn't need to sign anybody— Matt Vare (@Matt_Vare) November 8, 2018
Intelligent answer. Why would any manager say they weren't satisfied with their squad that was top of the league?— Sam Bevan (@saibevan6789) November 8, 2018
I know it's a cliche but Izzy Brown will be like a new signing and I feel Bielsa will only strengthen if he feels the needs additions. #lufc— ((SAMUEL)) ** (@Murray__87) November 8, 2018
The way Bielsa has us playing makes it very hard to sign players mid season. I'll be happy enough for him to promote the young kids that are around the first team and drilled in this style of play. Remember a lot of this team were here last season— Kyle Richmond (@KyleRic51721152) November 8, 2018
Leeds have made a flying start to the new campaign, and currently sit at the top of the Championship table.
Bielsa’s squad is not without its weaknesses though, and it certainly isn’t as large as many of their Championship rivals'.
Leeds are next in action this weekend, when they take on fellow promotion hopefuls West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.
