Campbell makes bold Leeds transfer claim after Hay's January signing reveal

Leeds United do not need to enter the January transfer market as their squad is “definitely” good enough to avoid relegation, according to Kevin Campbell.

The ex-Arsenal striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, suggested midfield cover is the only glaring hole in Marcelo Bielsa’s squad.

The Athletic‘s Phil Hay claims (October 8th) the Whites will refrain from entering the January market unless their league position becomes a concern.

Sporting director Victor Orta is said to see the window as offering little value for money.

The Yorkshire club were keen to add another midfielder to their ranks in the summer.

Huddersfield rejected a series of bids from Leeds for Lewis O’Brien, who has since penned a new contract with the Terriers.

When asked by Football Insider if it would be a mistake not to strengthen in January, Campbell said: “Do they need another centre-midfielder?

“They didn’t look good when Kalvin Philips was missing. I think they would get by if they did not sign anybody in January though. They definitely have enough to stay up in my opinion.

“Results are the currency of football though. If results do not go their way between now and January, everything could change. They might inject a bit of quality into their squad.

“I think Leeds will go on a run though. I think they’ll be out in and around mid-table by Christmas so I don’t see them doing much in window.”

In other news, Phillips has claimed Leeds are ‘massively relieved’ after an expert’s injury update.
