49ers, Radz and Orta suffer first transfer blow with Leeds now set to miss out on January target

  49ers, Radz and Orta suffer first transfer blow with Leeds now set to miss out on January target Leeds United look set to miss out on signing Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Brenden Aaronson, according to Mike McGrath of The Telegraph. The Lowdown: Leeds links The Whites were credited with a ‘serious interest’ in the USA international last week by journalist Tom Bogert, with Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta thought to be after both […]The Whites were credited with a ‘serious interest’ in the USA international last week by journalist Tom Bogert, with Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta thought to be after both a defensive and attacking midfielder in the New Year.

Football writer Conor McGilligan has urged Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa to make a ‘really shrewd’ move and sign James Maxwell in the transfer market.

With January now upon us, players are free to move from one club to another once more. One footballer who could be set for a transfer this winter is the Rangers left-back. Indeed, as reported by the Daily Mail, the 20-year-old full-back – who is currently on loan with Ayr United in the Scottish Championship – is a potential target for Leeds.

While discussing the player on the One Leeds Fan Channel, McGilligan claimed that a number of clubs have also got their eye on Maxwell, but if Bielsa could make the move happen, it would be a very clever piece of business.

The writer said: “Someone like Maxwell, this could be a really, really shrewd sign for Leeds United. There are many, many clubs across Europe looking at Maxwell.

“And it’s been making its way onto Rangers sites, Gers TV, Rangers TV news – it’s everywhere that Leeds United are looking at this guy.

“No smoke without fire, and it seems a very unique rumour for it not to hold any validation.”

TIF Thoughts on James Maxwell and Leeds…

At the moment, Junior Firpo is the only natural senior left-back option Leeds have in their squad. If he was to suffer a significant injury, the club could be left in a hazardous position.

Bielsa can save Radz millions by unleashing Leeds U23 gem who's "impossible to handle" - opinion

  Bielsa can save Radz millions by unleashing Leeds U23 gem who's Leeds United winger Crysencio Summerville could save the club millions if Marcelo Bielsa unleashes him more often.The 20-year-old winger, signed from Feyenoord in 2020, is yet to make his mark at Elland Road but this week, he once again excelled for the U23s with a first-half hat-trick, though it wasn’t enough to prevent the young Whites from a share of the spoils against Sunderland.

What’s more, with their form being pretty shaky across the season – they have won just four Premier League games this term – there is little margin for error in the second half of the campaign.

Which Liverpool midfielder used to play for Leeds' academy?

Curtis Jones James Milner Jordan Henderson Harvey Elliott

Maxwell has played 17 times during his current loan spell, scoring once and assisting three times. Although he may not be ready to make the jump to Premier League football straight away – as he has yet to play senior football for Rangers – having another option would at least provide some extra depth in the full-back position.
