Selling Leif Davis was clearly a mistake

Leif Davis had a nightmare on his return to Elland Road this month. He scored an own goal and he gave up a penalty in the 4-0 loss.


However, that is arguably the first occasion that Leeds have come close to being vindicated for selling Davis. The 24-year-old has been brilliant for Ipswich. No player in the Championship has contributed more assists than the defense.


Leeds meanwhile, have failed to find someone to rely on at the left-back position. Sam Byram, at his best, is one of the greatest in the division. But fitness has sadly been a concern for the academy graduate.


Leeds sold Davis while they were in the Premier League and he was low down the pecking order. So it seemed to make sense at the moment.


But he would be a very good addition to the side presently. And it should be in the back of Leeds’ mind if Ipswich make a play for Cresswell.


Cresswell is scarcely playing right now. But Joe Rodon is only on loan and Liam Cooper is unlikely to develop at this stage of his career. So Cresswell’s time may well come.

And if we sell him to Ipswich, we should not be at all astonished if he follows in Davis’ footsteps and ends up having a really beneficial impact on their push to secure back-to-back promotions.
