Leeds United were linked with a move for Ryan Woods in the summer transfer window.

Some Leeds United fans are ruing their club’s failure to sign one specific Adam Forshaw alternative in January.

Forshaw last appeared for Leeds at the end of September and is likely to miss the rest of the season as he undergoes hip surgery in the United States.

But even with two other midfielders, Kalvin Phillips and Robbie Gotts, suspended and injured respectively in January, the Whites failed to address Forshaw’s position.

And after Wednesday’s update on the 28-year-old, the following Leeds supporters cannot believe that an alleged former United target, Ryan Woods, was seemingly not considered.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Woods, for whom Stoke are said to have paid £7 million 18 months ago, was linked by The Sun last summer as a potential Phillips replacement should the latter player have left Elland Road.

But after another disappointing season in Staffordshire, the former Brentford man was loaned to Leeds’ promotion rivals Millwall in January.

Leeds fans – will your side regret its decision to strengthen in central midfield?
