Heck must forget about freebie reunion at Leeds after latest report with return of 5'7" star


When it comes to Leeds United and the transfer window, fans might be building up expectations which are going to be brought down to earth as the summer progresses.

Last year, the Elland Road faithful saw a whole host of changes through the senior side, with Victor Orta using Andrea Radrizzani’s bring in lots of new faces in an overhaul of the first team.

However, while they may have had their hearts in the right place, it did not come off as expected and left managers Thomas Christiansen and then Paul Heckingbottom with much more quantity than quality with which to work with.

Twelve months on and fans hoping for some serious spending to improve their situation will likely be disappointed, with smart signings on a limited budget the way it looks like the club’s business will be operated.

It is why a move for Andy Yiadom looked likely, with the Star claiming that Heckingbottom was keen to reunite with the Barnsley right back with the 26-year-old up for a free transfer as his contract with the Tykes runs out.

However, the latest report, courtesy of HITC, claim that Championship rivals Reading are ready to pounce on a move for Yiadom – and Heckingbottom should not be too disheartened, for he has the ideal solution already on his way back to Elland Road.

Lewie Coyle has caught the eye playing in League One with Fleetwood Town and the defender, who stands at 5’7″, is more than deserving of his chance in the first team – battling it out with Gaetano Berardi and Luke Ayling.

If either of those two were to exit, then perhaps a new right back would be needed, but the trio together are more than capable of making it through the season.

In other Leeds United transfer news, one of the club’s top targets is “on the verge of a move” according to his manager.
