Are Leeds in a better position for automatic promotion compared to this time last year?
Serie B outfit Chievo have parted with highly rated shot stopper Elia Caprile for an undisclosed fee. The 18yo has penned a three-and-a-half-year deal.
Ian Poveda has penned a four and a half deal with the Whites for a nominal fee believed to be 1m, and a 30% sell on clause. The England U20 attacking midfielder / winger could end up to be the bargain buy of the Championship.
Marquee signing Jean-Kevin Augustin has been capped at every level from Under-16s to Under-21s for his Country. The striker was instrumental in helping France win the European Under-19 Championship in 2016, where he was the top goal-scorer and player of the tournament. Augustin has the pedigree to play at a higher level. It was only after an intervention from Bielsa, that the 22yo agreed to spend the rest of the season in West Yorkshire. Should the Whites get promoted, there is a compulsory purchase clause where Leeds will have to part with 15m for the former PSG and Leipzig player.
