Pundit Exclusive: Leeds 'plan B & plan C' suggested after Hay/Ornstein news
Danny Mills is adamant Leeds United have a “Plan B” after a deal to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Michael Cuisance collapsed as the eleventh hour.
The former Whites and Manchester City full-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, suggested that other targets will have been “lined up” and could be signed before the window shuts tomorrow night.
The Athletic‘s David Ornstein and Phil Hay revealed earlier this week that Leeds had pulled out of a £20million deal to sign Cuisance after the player failed his medical.
Scans detected that the centre-midfielder had an underlying foot problem and head of medicine Rob Price subsequently advised the club to pull the plug on the transfer.
Football Insider revealed yesterday that the Whites are “back in” for Norwich City attacker Todd Cantwell after they submitted an opening bid of £15million.
Mills insisted that it would not be a problem if there were no more arrivals at Elland Road in with the January window not far away.

“Leeds will have a Plan B for Cuisance,” he told Football Insider.
“They have known that there was one or two issues regarding the Cuisance deal for three or four days so that has given them almost a week to look at another. I am sure they have other targets lined up. There is always a Plan B and a Plan C.
“Bielsa might be happy with what he has got and may stick given the way that they are playing. The January window is not too far away either.”
