In summing up the clubs needs, new Leeds manager Simon Grayson acknowledged "there is a need for freshness and competition for places."
Near the end of Gary McAllister’s tenure, the clubs competitive drive went into a tail spin with the not only the fit for position lacking but levels of fitness deplorably bad and the much of the club simply not being able to play at an acceptable pace. Each of these situations need to be pounded out harshly by the new man in charge.
I speaking directly of transfers and the timing, Simon Grayson added:
"There's things that are going on in the background, but there's no guarantee as to when.
"Hopefully there will be a couple because there is a need for freshness and competition for places."
