Radrizzani shares how many signings Leeds are working on this month
By Harvey Byrne
Leeds co-owner Andrea Radrizzani has shared that the club are currently working on “one or two players.”
The Yorkshire giants are sat in third place in the English second tier and they will be keen to ensure promotion in the second half of the campaign.
The club have already secured Spaniard Pablo Hernandez on a permanent transfer after he starred for Garry Monk’s side in his initial loan from Al-Arabi.
Fans are now keen to see who else will move to Elland Road in the winter window and Radrizzani shared in his press conference on Saturday morning that the club were working on a couple of players.
The press conference was covered BBC Sports broadcaster Adam Pope on his personal Twitter account.

The Scottish Sun have recently linked Leeds with a move to sign Celtic defender Emilio Izaguirre, while the club have been placed in the running to make a move for Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing.
The club have also been long-term admirers of West Ham striker Ashley Fletcher as they look to add more firepower to their team alongside Chris Wood.
However, the latest from TalkSPORT journalist Ian Abrahams is that he is not signing, but the reports appear to be ever-changing.
Football Insider verdict:
Leeds have set themselves in a fantastic position going into the final part of the season as they look to end their 13-year wait for top flight football. The win against Derby on Friday evening means they are now considered challengers for the automatic promotion spots with many not even expecting them to make the play-offs before the season began. However, one thing is clear from the Rams clash is that a new centre-back is necessary due to Pontus Jansson’s suspension and Liam Cooper’s injury forcing Monk into playing Luke Ayling out of position in the centre. The Yorkshire giants must also ensure that they avoid losing loan stars Jansson and Kyle Bartley and tie them up to permanent deals as soon as possible.
