Leeds must join reported race for 6ft 9in colossus to solve biggest Christiansen headache


With January just around the corner, Leeds United already appear to be dipping their toes into the transfer market, but one area of the squad that most fans want to see improved is in goals.

Summer signings Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan have both been underwhelming in their performances and Thomas Christiansen should work tirelessly to improve on the lacklustre duo.

Christiansen has already proven that he has been left with a huge selection headache with the duo by chopping and changing who is starting between the sticks as the Championship season develops.

January is the perfect time to solve this conundrum and Leeds should definitely join the reported chase to sign highly-rated Gillingham goalkeeper Tomas Holy.

News outlet HITC is reporting that Premier League side Crystal Palace and Championship sides Derby and Bristol City are keeping track of Holy, 26, who is in the form of his life with League One side Gillingham.

The former Czech Republic youth international would be exactly what Leeds need at the moment, He is cool, composed and has a brilliant presence in his own box.

The colossal goalkeeper stands at an incredible 6ft 9in and would make mince meat of any high crosses into the Leeds box, nullifying the lack of height among the rest of the outfield squad.

If Holy is good enough to warrant attention from Premier League sides like Palace, then he would be more than good enough at Elland Road.

Christiansen and Victor Orta must work to get this deal done next month or risk dropping down the Championship table as Wiedwald and Lonergan continue to make mistakes.
