Neil Redfearn has suggested that Leeds should have already strengthened their striker ranks this summer following Tuesday evening’s 0-0 draw against Fulham.
The goalless stalemate marked the Yorkshire giants’ second 0-0 draw in just a matter of four days at Elland Road following the same result against Preston on Saturday.
Now, Leeds have been busy this summer, sealing permanent and loan deals for a total of 12 players this summer, including the addition of forward Caleb Ekuban.
However, the Ghanaian is still waiting to make his league debut for the club and Redfearn has told that a striker maybe should have already been signed with just 15 days left of the transfer window.
“It’s maybe something that should have happened anyway,” started Redfearn speaking to Yorkshire TV about the prospect of a new striker joining Leeds.
“Give Chris Wood either a partner off the bench, or somebody to replace him if he’s lagging a little bit, or he needs a bit of a breather. It will probably help.”
Leeds have been linked to a couple of forwards in recent weeks with the Mail claiming that the Whites had made a stunning move to re-sign Aston Villa’s Ross McCormack, while the Mail also reported that Hamburg striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga was in Leeds.
However, with neither deal seemingly close to completion fans of the Yorkshire giants will be hoping that last season’s 30-goal striker can rediscover his scoring boots with Sunderland coming up on Saturday.
