Leeds United Eye In-Form Midfielder From Norwich City: The Right Man For Christiansen?

Leeds United withered away in a pretty unacceptable manner in the business end of the season under the stewardship of Garry Monk. The Whites did hit the right strings for a major chunk of the 2016-17 season of Sky Bet Championship but owing to their self-constructed woes, they couldn’t even register a top-six finish and thus, another season of toil in the English second division awaits them.

Bolstering their squad over the summer would be really necessary as the new manager in the shape of Thomas Christiansen would be looking to ensure that his troops fare in a better manner as compared to the outputs of Monk. If the latest reports are to be believed, Christiansen is attempting to lure Norwich City’s star Jonny Howson to the Elland Road to uplift the calibre of his midfield arsenal to earn the tag of a Premier League side as soon as possible.

Under new sporting director Stuart Webber, the Canaries are planning to revamp their squad in order to ensure that they impose a galvanising challenge for promotion spots in the Championship next term.

Impliedly, some of their key players are likely to be sold and in light of interest from the Peacocks for Howson, Norwich City have slapped a price tag of £5m. So, should the prospective buyer actually make a move to acquire Howson despite the hefty price tag?

Howson is a player who has proved his worth time and again and has truckloads of experience of English football under his belt. Having emerged through the youth ranks of Leeds United, the Englishman was signed by Norwich City in 2012 after he excelled for the senior side of the Whites for a considerable period of time. Predominantly a central midfielder, Howson can be efficiently pencilled on the right side of the midfield as well and is unarguably still an appealing commodity for Championship outfits.

Last season, the 29-year-old mustered 38 appearances to his name whilst which he banged 6 goals and registered 7 assists with a decent pass accuracy of 77.6%. His finishing is exemplary, always intends to keep the game ticking in favour of his employers, holds the ball really well and is a calm and composed veteran who hardly puts a foot in the wrong direction, and it goes without saying that is someone who can lift the quality as well as quality of Leeds United’s midfield pack.
