Why It Would Make Complete Sense If Leeds United Manage To Sign This Bristol City Defender

Despite having failed to secure a promotion to the English top division, it has to be underlined that under the tutelage of Garry Monk, Leeds United did better their stature in the Championship. They did come very close to securing a playoff spot but owing to their sporadic run of form in the business end, the scenario took a sharp turn against them. However, they did show promise, grit and perseverance and there is no denying this.

Now that Thomas Christiansen has the command, he must make a proper use of the pedestal which Monk had created. One of the most intriguing aspects of the Whites’ last term was the resilience in their defence.

However, the return of Kyle Bartley to the Liberty Stadium after the completion of a successful loan spell implies that Christiansen indeed has a void to fill and is in a dire need to bag someone who could be pencilled along with Pontus Jansson.

Bristol City’s Aden Flint could prove to be a major coup for the Peacocks, considering the impact he has made with the Robins ever since signing for them from Swindon Town and was recently rumoured of moving to the Elland Road. In fact, our sources tell us that Leeds United have made a bid for Aden Flint.

The West Yorkshire based club have been intriguingly invested in the summer transfer window and someone like Flint could be one of the finishing touches, which Christiansen would be inclined to make to bolster his arsenal before the next season commences.

Flint is a defender of fine calibre who could be Bartley’s astute replacement. Tall, well-built and dependable, the 28-year-old central defender has an exceptional tendency to bang goals and is really strong in the air. He has paved his way to the Championship right from the non-league sector with Alfreton Town to league football with Swindon Town and Bristol City and thus, it goes without saying that he has the requisite experience of English football.

Besides, he reads the game really well, takes proactive measures to clear the dangers and doesn’t refrain from getting into the tight circumstances, which has really polished his game to a huge extent. Last season, Flint appeared to be a handy package for Bristol City as he registered 1.3 tackles, 1.5 interceptions, 9 clearances and 1 block per game on an average.

Further, he got 1 assist to show and also found the back of the net on 5 occasions and thus, manoeuvring him to the central defence with Jansson could yield substantial dividends for Leeds United next term.
