Leeds United manager Thomas Christiansen has claimed that he is currently happy with his striker options at Elland Road, dropping a major hint that he will not be looking to bolster that area of his squad this month.

With the January transfer window now open, many fans are urging Christiansen to go out and sign up a new striker this month in order to improve their chances of sealing promotion to the Premier League.

Summer signings Pierre-Michel Lasogga, Jay-Roy Grot and Caleb Ekuban have proved to be major disappointments, leading to Kemar Roofe to become the first choice to play in the lone striker role in recent weeks.

However, even Roofe has been inconsistent and the majority of fans feel as though Leeds do not have a striker who has been able to fill the void left by Chris Wood when he joined Burnley in the summer.

On Saturday, the Elland Road faithful took to Twitter to urge the club to go out and sign Peterborough striker Jack Marriott after his brace against Aston Villa in the FA Cup.

But now, Christiansen has suggested that he will not be making any striker signings this month.

“We have. We have enough strikers upfront. We have Jay, we have Pierre, we have Roofey, we have Ekuban when he comes back from the injury. We have four strikers there that we can choose,” said the Leeds manager when asked if he has enough firepower up front, as quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

After a good start to life in England, Hamburg loanee Lasogga has drifted down the pecking order after a series of cumbersome displays.

Many believe that Grot is yet to reach the level required to play in the Championship while Ekuban has spent almost the entire season out with injury.
