Regarding the possibility of Leeds United adding any new players this month, questions have been posed to Daniel Farke once more.


Even if Leeds hasn’t made a move in the January window yet, Farke acknowledges that there are still several positions that need to be strengthened during the next nine days.


Leeds’ first issue right now is the full-back positions after losing both Djed Spence and Luke Ayling, but Farke stated today that they also need to “stay awake on” another area.


That’s the center back. Due to injury, Pascal Struijk has been out of action for Leeds for the past month, and it is currently unknown when he will be back.


Charlie Cresswell is also probably going to depart since Farke isn’t ready to choose him for the team right now unless he changes his mindset. For him, bids have already been turned down.


Farke stated that Leeds cannot afford to be “naïve” during the next nine days, with the squad being “two players short” of what it was at the beginning of the window, at his press conference held earlier today in advance of Norwich City.


Farke gives a hint about upcoming signings: “In this league, form swings come quickly. Before we were the greatest team in November, we were certain. Even after losing a few games, we still support and believe in the players.


The full-back positions following Djed and Luke have altered. We released them. We lack two players from the first half of the season. Subject at the moment with Pascal Struijk and Charlie Cresswell.



Will have to wait and see what the coming days bring. We had hoped he would be back sooner rather than later. Not gullible at all. Evaluate this role. We are aware of the areas where we must remain vigilant.

In recent days, Leeds has been linked to a deal for Ben Godfrey of Everton; if Cresswell were to depart, this acquisition would greatly bolster Farke’s team.


Despite being a center-back by trade, he can cover any position in the back four, thus Leeds would have considerable depth if he joined forces with another full-back.


Adding a top-notch center defender is obvious given that Struijk’s injury is taking a lot longer to heal than anticipated.
