Leeds United has not yet made their first acquisition in the January transfer window.


English football transfer activity has been extremely quiet this month, but when the season gets closer and players become available for a move, things might pick up speed.


Leeds is prepared to wait patiently for their top targets, and Daniel Farke has identified a player who might fulfill this wish, even though his club is still indecisive.


David Brooks of Bournemouth is that player. Leeds and Southampton were reportedly in the running for the 26-year-old at the beginning of the transfer season, but as of right now, nothing has changed.


According to Phil Hay, who was speaking on the most recent episode of the Square Ball Podcast, a lot of people think that Brooks will be open to a last-minute trade.


Brooks might depart Bournemouth in the evening.

“There is talk down at Bournemouth about Brooks; a lot of people believe that as the window closes, Bournemouth might actually soften their stance on him,” the speaker stated. Having said that, they were unsure of their desire for him to leave at the beginning of the window.


Even though Andoni Iraola gave Brooks the captain’s armband for an FA Cup match against QPR, he did not entirely wipe out the rumors that linked him to a possible exit.

Brooks has started just one Premier League game this season—that one being back in October—and has only been used sparingly for Bournemouth thus far.


Luis Sinisterra, a Leeds loanee, is one of the guys ahead of him in the attacking trio behind Dominic Solanke, the standout player.


It would be intriguing to see if Burnley’s Manuel Benson, who has also been linked, can sign a contract with Leeds, who need a new left-footed right-winger.
