Leeds must sign up Celtic attacker after making admission, has 7 goals and 13 assists this term

COMMENT

Leeds United will need another overhaul in the summer after seeing a lot of Victor Orta’s signings at Elland Road fail to show much improvement on what was already there last season.

One player that Leeds must look to sign is Celtic attacker Ryan Christie after he admitted that he is not sure what the future holds for him when he returns from his loan spell at Aberdeen.

Christie, 22, has been in sensational form this season for the Dons, scoring seven goals and supplying 13 assists in 32 appearances across all competitions.

The one-time Scotland international would be a clear improvement on what Paul Heckingbottom already gets to work with in attack and the Celtic ace’s versatility would be a massive advantage to the Whites.

Christie can play behind a striker and on either wing, which would be a massive help for Leeds especially as a lot of their attacking players away from Samuel Saiz and Pierre-Michel Lasogga have been letdowns this season.

There’s also the future of Pablo Hernandez to think about as the Spaniard’s deal is up in the summer.

Christie would be a ready-made replacement for Hernandez and would be able to offer years of service at Elland Road.

The Scottish attacker has been quoted by the Scotsman as saying that he is willing to wait and see what happens in the summer, but Leeds must make a tempting offer to him in order to pry him away from Celtic Park where he does not appear to have much future under Brendan Rodgers.
