Leeds United transfer news: West Ham set to battle Whites for 14-goal star

Leeds United's fine run of form came to an abrupt halt last weekend, when Brighton & Hove Albion defeated them 2-0 at the Amex Stadium, despite the Whites dominated possession for much of the encounter.

The result, which all but secured the Seagulls' safety away from the relegation zone, saw Leeds drop out of the top half of the table, but they should stand a good chance of moving back into the top ten with a relatively comfortable final four fixtures on the horizon against the likes of Burnley and West Brom.

Speaking after the weekend action, Leeds' loan star Jack Harrison gave his verdict on the Brighton game, and claimed: “It's a disappointing result, we've prepared so much all week to face them and the different formations that they could play.

“We found it difficult playing against their three centre backs and they made it difficult for us to create chances as well, which is unlike us. So yeah, it's very frustrating not to come away with the result.”

Meanwhile, it was another weekend of dramatic action in the Championship, with Yorkshire sides Rotherham United and Sheffield Wednesday taking their relegation battle down to the final game of the season, Huddersfield Town securing their safety, and play-off contenders Barnsley losing to Preston North End.
