Whites look to summer window Mark May 29, 2015 Leeds United 27 Comments It was another disappointing season for Leeds fans as the club languished around mid-table once more. After picking up just the one win from their final 9 games, they managed to end the campaign in fifteenth spot, accruing one point less than their total haul from the 2013/14 season. But now it’s all over, and, as the dust begins to settle, it’s time to set sights on bigger and better things next season; who will be the new names and faces that could be heading to Elland Road over the summer period in order to give the whites a much needed boost? With German coach Uwe Rösler, their newly appointed manager, now at the helm (and incredibly marking the club’s fifth manager in just 12 months) the new Leeds gaffer certainly has his work cut out for him. First up on the rumour mill is Southend United goalkeeper Daniel Bentley who is currently being targeted by the club along with Championship rivals Bristol City and Premier League outfit West Ham. But with Bentley’s sights firmly fixed on first team football he may not be willing to jump ship just yet. Hoping to bring a little Uruguayan flair to the side would be the successful signing of Inter Milan full-back Alvaro Pereira. The club has already reportedly put out an offer in for the experienced 29-year old this month but after already missing out on picking him up in the January window it’ll be interesting to see what happens. Leeds will also be looking to tighten up at the back if they are to make a realistic challenge for promotion next term and sources at Elland Road have indicated that Colombian centre back Jherson Vergara could be on the radar. The 21-year old is regarded as a hot prospect; strong, quick and powerful, his game should suit the physicality of the Championship. At the other end of the field both Brentford’s Andre Gray and Stoke City’s Charlie Adam are also rumoured to be on the hit list and either of those signings would surely help boost the White’s goal tally next season. To emphasize the gap between Leeds and eventual champions Bournemouth, Leeds bagged 50 in the entire 2014/15 campaign, almost half of the amount Eddie Howe’s side managed to notch up. With high hopes for next season- and the future of the club looking a little brighter- could we finally see the whites climb out of mid-table and make it to the play-offs if not even higher? William Hill offers make that target seem like an attractive proposition to back. If Rosler can attract some real talent this window, and keep them fit for the entire campaign, then 2015/16 could be the season when Leeds United finally end their Premier League exodus.
