Leeds Optimistic About Securing 2 Loan Deals – reports

Leeds United are said to be optimistic about securing two half season long loan deals for Leonardo Pavoletti and Rene Krhin, according to Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post.

The Elland Road club go into tonight’s clash with Derby County marooned towards the bottom half of the table, a far cry from the optimism that surrounded the team after their 2-0 home win against Steve McClaren’s side only a month ago.

Since then, Neil Redfearn’s side have not won a single game or drawn a match.

As a result, despite the transfer embargo facing them in the January transfer window, they are expected to make some signings.

Two positions that have been targeted for improvements are midfield and up front.

Pavoletti was a player that Leeds targeted in the summer, and they narrowly missed out on signing him on transfer deadline day.

Krhin is a player who has only recently been linked with Leeds.

Both could now be added when the transfer window rolls around, with loan spells with a view to a permanent deal the likely outcome.

Leeds Enter Talks To Sign €4m Midfield Ace – reports

Leeds United have entered talks to sign Inter Milan midfielder Rene Krhin.

The 24 year old is available to sign from the Italian Giants in the January transfer window, but they are not particularly keen to see him depart on loan in the near future.

They instead would like to sell him for around €4 million, despite the fact that they have rarely played him since signing him from Maribor in 2007. Maribor are former Leeds United manager Darko Milanic’s former side.

Therefore, Leeds might struggle to capture him, according to Simon Austin, who regularly reports on the club for The Sun and other newspapers, and is known to have a good relationship with owner Massimo Cellino.

This is as a result of the transfer embargo levelled at the club by the Football League.

While they are able to sign players, there are limitations on paying transfer and loan fees.

Leeds are also negotiating to sign Leonardo Pavoletti from Sassuolo.
