Championship outfit Leeds United have signed Benfica B’s Oliver Sarkic on loan until December. He received the clearance to make a move to the Elland Road after he was scouted regularly by the Whites. It is perceived that Sarkic would be a part of Leeds United’s U23 side and is considering that he is a player with immense potential, Leeds United have indeed done a stupendous job by making him sign on the dotted line.
Leeds United had a very busy summer transfer window, as Thomas Christiansen ensured that he acquires the required ammunition to challenge for a promotion this season. Under his tutelage, the Yorkshire based club have roped in the likes of Samu Saiz, Ezgjan Alioski, Pawel Cibicki and Meteusz Klich to significantly bolster their credentials.
Last season when Garry Monk was in-charge, Leeds United came very close to securing a playoff spot for the major chunk of the season.
However, owing to their sporadic run of form during the business end, they withered away and destroyed the good things they created. Nonetheless, it was good to see them challenging for the uplift and Christiansen could use the deeds of Monk as the pedestal to launch his team forward in the right direction, and with the quality in their squad right now, it seems as if they can cross the hurdles this time around.
Sarkic emerged through the youth ranks of Anderlecht and Benfica and his promising spells earned him a call to the reserve side of the Eagles. He bagged crucial first-team experience whilst playing for Portuguese second division side AD Fafe and fell on the radar of Premier League outfit Swansea City.
Any sort of a deal failed to materialize between the Swans and the attacker, and thus, it was a huge benefit for the Peacocks. Besides, he also has piled a decent amount of experience with Montenegro U17, U19 and U21 sides and is dearly admired by the football fraternity.
Leeds United have carved a spectacular start to their new campaign, having collected 14 points from their first 6 games, with their latest outing ending in their stupendous 5-0 home win against Burton Albion. Christiansen might need some bodies during the later stages of the season and no wonder why he secured a loan move for the 20-year-old. Although the starlet is far from playing for their first team, if he manages to impress with the U23 side, a permanent deal might be on the cards.
