Leeds United Eyeing A Last Minute Deal For League Two Sensation: Good Fit For Christiansen’s Plan?

Leeds United have already signed four players in the January transfer window and are looking to make final additions in the dying minutes. With less than 12 hours left to the deadline, the Whites are eyeing a move for Forest Green Rovers youngster, Jordan Stevens.

The Gloucester-born midfielder has made 13 appearances for the League Two side this season and is being targeted for a transfer fee of £250,000. Stevens signed his first professional contract as a 17-year-old on 17th September and is set to be with the Gloucestershire club till the summer of 2019. A cool and composed presence in the defensive midfield position, Stevens grabbed his first goal in the side’s League Cup win against Cheltenham Town in October. He is a very gifted prospect who needs to feature regularly for a senior side, which has been hard to come by.

Stevens will definitely get to feature in Carlos Corberan’s U23 side and can continue his development in the upper divisions of English football.

Leeds have already signed Finnish defender Aapo Halme, striker Sam Dalby from Leyton Orient and West Bromwich Albion teenager, Tyler Roberts. They also found their midfielder in Yosuke Ideguchi who arrived from Gamba Osaka on a four-year-deal earlier this month and Adam Forshaw from Middlesbrough.

Stevens is expected to continue his development at Elland Road and secure a future for the Whites. The club is currently facing a tumultuous period in the EFL Championship having lost 3 of their last 5 games. Thomas Christiansen is in dire need of players who can hit the ground running and help his side to get out of the present situation, helping them to finish the season in a respectable position. His men are struggling to find the back of the net while the defensive backline has looked less than impressive.

After getting relegated from the Premier League in the 2003/04 season, the Peacocks have shuffled around the lower divisions of English football. But under Andrea Radrizzani, Leeds have looked their best self well poised to finally make a return to top-flight English football.

Judging by the trajectory Wolves are taking, every club emerging from the Championships need to build a squad with enough depth to last the gruelling 38 games against strong oppositions.

Having youngsters like Stevens only showcases the club’s ambitions and this should come as a huge boost for the fans at Elland Road, who are looking forward to seeing their club feature once again in the top flight.
