Leeds United take on Liverpool at Elland Road this evening, in what should be a fascinating contest between Marcelo Bielsa's in-form Whites and the Premier League champions.

As things stand, Leeds are tenth in the table with seven games of their season left to go, but could potentially leapfrog Arsenal into ninth with a win this evening.

Speaking ahead of the game, Bielsa compared star full-back Stuart Dallas to Inter Milan icon Javier Zanetti, and claimed: “Those two players are very alike Dallas in terms of their versatility.

“He (Dallas is a very potent, powerful player. He can play with either foot, with his right or his left, he is good at defending.

“He has the capacity to combine as well as make runs that allows him to flourish in the middle and he has a change of rhythm and surprise when he attacks. It is very difficult to find all of that in just one player.”

Meanwhile, down in the Championship, it was again a weekend of mixed fortunes for Yorkshire's sides, with promotion-chasing Barnsley and relegation-threatened Rotherham United suffering defeat, Sheffield Wednesday picking up a point against Bristol City, while Huddersfield Town ended a five-game run without a win by beating Nottingham Forest.

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Leeds United, Huddersfield Town and a number of other sides from Yorkshire and beyond, as the reaction to the weekend's action continues:
