A fantastic playerLeeds United is currently looking to sign a defender that gets along well with Joe Rodon.
This month, Leeds United is looking to add a couple of full-backs, but they only have two weeks to make any moves.
Leeds needed to improve their defense on the opposite side as well, since they lost both Luke Ayling and Djed Spence. The left-back position was always a top priority before the transfer market opened.
This season, Leeds has already brought in three Wales internationals, but surprisingly, they have been linked to adding several more in January.
This month, Leeds has made reference to Neco Williams, Connor Roberts, Kieffer Moore, David Brooks, Chris Mepham, and most recently, Ben Davies. They are all complete Wales stars.
The most surprising player on the list is definitely Davies of Tottenham Hotspur, who has been a regular center-back under Ange Postecoglou this season.
Nevertheless, Leeds is closely monitoring his circumstances unless there are any changes; Davies is a good buddy of Joe Rodon’s who is, of course, on loan from Tottenham.
In an interview with Wales Online as recently as November, the 30-year-old expressed his satisfaction with Rodon’s success at Elland Road and went on to say that the two have a truly “good understanding” on the field.
Davies, Rodon’s close buddy, is a target for Leeds.
He remarked, “It’s challenging.” People occasionally underestimate the difficulties of moving every nine months to a new location. However, it appears that he has settled down in Leeds.
Joe is an excellent player. He is always really reliable, skilled with the ball, and I believe our communication is strong. I play with him for Wales every time. It really does cheer me to watch him succeed at Leeds.
Since Joe is one of my closest football friends, we communicate frequently. He is the kind of guy that is a very, really excellent defender and I believe he is displaying it right now when he is at a place where he feels respected and is having a nice run of games.
Press Conference and Open Training Session with the Wales Captain
Prior to Sunday’s 2-2 tie at Manchester United, Davies had played 90 minutes in each of the previous nine Premier League games for Spurs. However, he is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury.
But it would be fantastic if Leeds could somehow get him to Elland Road. Acquiring athletes who already have a positive rapport with teammates can only be advantageous.
It would be fascinating to see if any of the previously identified Leeds target Roberts—who has previously revealed his arrangement with Rodon—make the transfer this month.
