There have been rumors that Leeds United, who is vying for promotion automatically from the Championship, may consider signing a midfield player as a free agent.

Leeds United’s January transfer window

Connor Roberts joins Leeds United on loan - Leeds United

With right-back Connor Roberts entering on loan from Burnley, the Whites made their only signing of the month late in the winter transfer window. After Luke Ayling moved for Middlesbrough and Djed Spence’s season-long loan was canceled early, Daniel Farke undoubtedly needed a new full-back. Farke expressed his delight at signing Roberts, saying:

“Therefore, we intended to bring in an expert.”We wanted to add a little experience, and we found one with Connor Roberts at the ideal age. Fantastic CV. He was in the Championship Team of the Year as a right-back even the previous season.

“There are 180 games at this level, 40 Premier League games, excellent character, available now, and fully committed.” I’m not too unhappy with him.Although it seems like half of the Welsh national team is currently with us, I really appreciate their mindset, therefore we will adequately prepare them for a play-off final matchup with Finland led by Glen Kamara.

“All in all, it was a really good signing, and we had to wait for him because we wanted to add someone who fits in well and strengthens our group.”

Roberts was cup-tied the previous week and arrived too late to make his debut against Bristol City, therefore he might be eligible to play against Rotherham United. More Elland Road exits occurred last month as well, with Ian Poveda, Sean McGurk, and Darko Gyabi joining Swindon Town, Sheffield Wednesday, and Plymouth Argyle, respectively.

Luis Sinisterra has made his move to Bournemouth permanent, even though the window is closed, and there have been rumors of possible targets as the free agency market is constantly open.

Leeds free agent transfer claim

In the past 48 hours, Leeds Live published an article examining four free agents who Farke might think about signing to Elland Road to support Leeds in building on their encouraging start to the year. Josh Onomah, a midfielder who left Preston North End in the summer, was one of them. In fact, he hasn’t had a club since.

“Onomah has played for Preston North End most recently, and he has experience in both the Championship and Premier League.” He spent 32 seasons as a player with Tottenham Hotspur from the start of his career before moving to Fulham in 2019. Ironically, he scored his first goal for the Cottagers against Leeds in December of that year. He stayed with the London team until January 2023, when he moved to Preston. Onomah, who is only 26 years old, might be a valuable central midfield alternative from this point until the end of the season.

As a former England U21 international, Onomah has played ten or more games in four distinct midfield positions, thus his future team would benefit greatly from his versatility.

But one could argue that Onomah isn’t really needed in Yorkshire since Leeds has options in the middle of the park with Glen Kamara, Ilia Gruev, Archie Gray, and Ethan Ampadu.
