What Leeds United Can Expect If They Sign This Brighton Midfielder

Leeds United are one of the clubs to be linked with Brighton midfielder Oliver Norwood. Here we look at how Norwood can potentially help the Whites win promotion to the Premier League.

Norwood has found game time limited at Brighton

Norwood has struggled to get game time with Albion over the last couple of years. Since joining in 2016, he has only made 33 appearances with most of those coming in Brighton’s promotion campaign from the Championship in the 2016/17 season. The 27-year-old spent the whole of last season out on loan at Fulham and impressed everyone by making 36 appearances and scoring five goals. 

Even the number of appearances he has made at Fulham is more than what he managed in two years with Albion. Norwood now has a huge task ahead of him in convincing Chris Hughton that he should be a part of the gaffer’s plans this season. This is due to the signing of Yves Bissouma from Lille, meaning Norwood would probably be Albion’s fifth choice midfielder.

What could Norwood bring to Leeds United?

If Norwood joins Leeds, the big question is what he would bring to them? The Whites would potentially add on someone who is good at passing the ball from deep. There is also one added benefit of having Norwood; he is good from a dead ball situation. He has displayed this over the years for both Reading and Brighton. 

For a box-to-box midfielder, Norwood has an eye for goal and makes excellent runs into the box. He is also really adept at finishing from both inside and outside the box. 

This combination of attributes would be hugely beneficial to a club like Leeds United. Norwood is also experienced at the international level having made 53 appearances for Northern Ireland.

Where will Norwood end up?

No one knows for sure. Leeds United will have to fight off attention from Hull City and potentially other Championship clubs to secure the midfielder’s services.
