Leeds United might have failed to get inside the top six berths the last term as they succumbed during the business end of the 2016-17 Championship season, but it goes without saying that they did carve a decent pedestal for themselves.
While Garry Monk’s reign has ceased to exist, Thomas Christiansen has been handed the responsibility of taking the club forward and strive to attain at least a playoff spot, which could eventually render them a promotion if they make the most of it.
Christiansen is doing a lot of chores to ensure that he constructs a side which could challenge for an uplift. The West Yorkshire based side have already signed quality players like Vurnon Anita, Ezgjan Alioski, Samuel Saiz and Mateusz Klich, apart from Hadi Sacko on a permanent basis, and if one of the latest reports of Foot Mercato is to be believed, the Whites are seemingly interested in luring Harold Voyer, who has been released by Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain to the Elland Road this summer.
Kyle Bartley formed an excellent central defensive partnership with Pontus Jansson last season under the tactical nous of Monk. However, Bartley was brought on a loan spell and the productivity he put on display have prompted Swansea City in asserting their right as they seek to make a good use of him in the upcoming Premier League season.
Christiansen is vouching for gettable targets and no wonder why a free agent like Voyer gas fallen on his radar as one of the potential candidates to be pencilled alongside Jansson at the heart of the defence of Leeds United.
Voyer is widely acknowledged as one of the most promising youngsters to have emerged from the youth setup of PSG. Owing to the inclination of the French giants towards operating with a star-studded unit, the 20-year-old was not handed an extension as he is desirous of plying his trade on a regular basis at this stage of his career where he needs to make the most of the calibre he possesses.
The English Championship could be an excellent destination for the young centre-back and thus, a move to the ranks of the Peacocks could be a galvanising option for Voyer.
The blossoming starlet is an exciting talent who just needs a proper guidance to take his career to the next level, having represented the French Under19 side and has also been a monitored face during the youth league matches for PSG. With the apparent interest from clubs like Newcastle United as well as Fulham, Leeds United might have the last laugh as they could provide him more time on the pitch than the two other clubs mentioned.
