Leeds United transfer news: Whites plot raid for 'Big Six' midfielder, Player nears Elland Road exit

Leeds United have had to bide their time to get back into Premier League action this weekend.

Monday, 19th April 2021, 1:56 pm

The Whites face Liverpool at Elland Road on Monday evening, and haven’t kicked a ball since they beat Manchester City at the Etihad last time out.

That result took Marcelo Bielsa’s men into the upper half of the table, and a win against the Reds would cement their spot top 10, with Arsenal dropping points against Fulham on Sunday.

The Argentine boss is eager for his side to make the most of their seven remaining games too.

Speaking in a press conference, he said: "Everything that is mathematically possible is within our aspirations.

"The way in which we play the remaining seven games, the points we obtain, will give the campaign more shine or less shine.

"So to have an opinion on something which has not happened and is subject to the seven remaining games wouldn't be a good idea."

Monday’s clash is likely to come under heightened scrutiny after it was announced that Liverpool are one of six English clubs who intend to become founding members of a controversial European Super League.

The news, which was confirmed on Sunday, has led to widespread outrage from many quarters, with everybody from Gary Neville to Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemning the move and the clubs who have already signed up.

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Leeds and the rest of the Premier League as the reaction to last weekend's action continues:
