Should Leeds United Turn To One Of Their Former Players To Help In The Potential Transition Next Season?

Leeds United have dramatically fought their demons of mediocrity and obscurity ever since Garry Monk was handed the charge of the club. The Whites have gone from strength to strength, united together as a team and the results soon started to arrive in a befitting manner under the excellent tutelage of Monk. What has been more intriguing is the fact that they haven’t fallen like a pack of cards midway into the season and are looking firm to finish the campaign on a notable high.

One of the prime accreditations the former Swansea City manager should be assigned is the manner in which he has been thoroughly shrewd to strike the right chords in the transfer window. The January transfer window saw quality names getting imported to the Elland Road in the form of Pablo Hernandez, Modou Barrow and Alfonso Pedraza which clearly gives an indication that Leeds United aren’t likely to be complacent in the coming future like they did in the last decade or so.

However, one of the names they missed out to lure is that of Fabian Delph. The Manchester City midfielder’s big-money move to the Etihad Stadium hasn’t worked out anywhere near to what he might have thought and Delph’s stature has been reduced to that of an outcast.

He hasn’t been handed even one start in the Premier League this season as the availability of a plethora of stars in their ranks barely gives Pep Guardiola a chance to derive the best out of Delph.

However, the persistent overlooking attitude over Delph in the Blue half of Manchester is rapidly tarnishing his image of a sensational midfielder and a move in the summer is what he might be apparently looking at in order to play regular first-team football. Nonetheless, he is still a high calibre player who can play effectively in the middle of the park, makes precise passes and loves to play long balls which would come in handy for a side like Leeds United.

The Peacocks were linked to the English international in the recent past and without any shadow of a doubt, Monk should reattempt to sign him once the curtains of the January transfer window get lifted. With a promotion likely to be on the cards, a transfer to his former club might just appeal to the 27-year-old, for he must be plying his trade week in and week and this move should benefit all the parties involved.
