Jones, speaking in his capacity as Assistant Manager after the Birmingham match, has updated fans on the progress regarding transfers:
Apparently there are four positions that need strengthening, which sounds about right to us. Assuming it must be striker, which is public, the wings and the center of midfield.
No decisive progress with transfers as of yet.
Jones fearful about bids for Becchio and Byram during January, but remains positive.
“If Man Utd come in and offer £10m for Sam Byram, you can’t turn that down. He’s going to leave.”
However, Mick Jones expects both Byram and Becchio to stay, despite the fact that the club will have to fend off bids for them. Feels a shift from previous policy where it was apparently impossible to retain any player ever.
Jones also claimed that other clubs are inflating prices when Leeds make contact with them. Our own analysis thinks this may be due to a high profile takeover that has not necessarily revealed its financial clout one way or another.
