Leeds United Plotting A Move For This English Full Back: A Move For The Future?

Thomas Christiansen must have been chalking his plans for the January transfer window. It hasn’t been a crystal clear season for Leeds United as they had to face numerous difficulties on the road.

Leeds’ primary aim has been to find themselves a place among the automatic playoffs spot as the promotion has eluded them for 14 years as of now. They came very close last season under the tutelage of Garry Monk but their performance in the last few matches didn’t match the requirement so they had to be happy with a spot outside of the top six.

But this season they cannot manage any more slip-ups as it would hand their fellow promotional rivals a chance to close in. There has been a number of problems that Christiansen needs to address and left back remains a weak link for the Whites.

Gaetano Berardi has done a very good job but he is primarily a right-back while Vuron Anita is only a short time solution for the position. So the gaffer has to bring a proper left back and Bristol City’s Joe Bryan would be a good bet.

The Robins defender has been an ever-present in the Championship as he has been there for his side since the start of the season. He has been one of the most impressive players in the second tier who has been consistently helped his side climbing up on the table.

With the season already in midway, the promotional battle has turned fierce. Wolves have maintained their tough stance at the top of the table while Bristol City are not far behind, currently stranded in the third position.

Bryan has been with the Robins since the start of his career. He came through the youth academy of them and was handed his first professional contract in 2011. Last season he probably was the best left-back in the Championship and he has continued his resurgence in this season too.

It would need a heck of a battle to lure Bryan from Ashton Gate Stadium. Bristol City have maintained their defiance from letting the player go off their books but money has the power to turn things out.

Leeds have enough financial resources at their disposal and they can certainly manage to offer a sumptuous bid for the 24-year-old but nothing is in their hand. If a deal happens it would provide Leeds with a much-needed momentum in their promotional battle.
