Leeds United fans react on Twitter to triple swoop rumours

Marcelo Bielsa, Manager of Leeds United looks on prior to the Sky Bet Championship Play-off semi final first leg match between Derby County and Leeds United at Pride Park Stadium on May 11,...

Marcelo Bielsa has been linked with three new transfer targets if he stays on as Leeds United boss today.

Leeds United fans do not appear particularly keen on reports in the Yorkshire Evening Post that Marcelo Bielsa is lining up a triple swoop for Jack Harrison, Michael Frey and Silvan Hefti.

Leeds are said to be working on transfer plans for next season, even though Bielsa hasn’t officially announced that he is staying on yet.


However, the initial targets that Leeds have in mind have not particularly impressed the Elland Road crowd.

Hefti and Frey have zero experience of playing in the Championship, while Harrison was nothing more than solid during his spell at Leeds last season.

And Whites fans seem to be a little concerned about the transfer report coming out.

Leeds only narrowly missed out on promotion this season and there is a feeling around Elland Road that one or two quality additions is all that they need this summer to push them over the line.

However, it is not entirely clear what Leeds’ budget is going to be like for the upcoming transfer window, with Bielsa’s plans yet to become clear.
