Leeds United head coach Steve Evans doesn’t believe the emergency loan market will be of great help for the Whites, and he remains reluctant to sign players on short term loan deals.

Evans and the Leeds hierarchy received flak for not making adequate additions to the squad during the January transfer window, but the Scot has always maintained that the summer is their main focus.

With the emergency loan window open, Evans has so far decided against making a move for any players, despite rumours of Leeds thinking about signing fresh faces on short term loan deals.

And Evans doesn’t believe Leeds are going to get the players they require during the loan window, and while he would certainly do business if he finds the right kind of personnel, he remains reluctant to dip into the market.

The Leeds boss was quoted as saying by the Yorkshire Evening Post: “You always ask yourself ‘if I’m going to get better than this then where are they?’  


“If I’m being honest, they’re either playing in the Premier League and won’t come out or they’re in the top end of the Championship. That’s the reality of the situation.

“If a player jumps up that we think can do a good job then we’d try and see if we could make it happen but we still have a lot of work to do to put the right team in place. Days like [Saturday] tell you a big story.”

Leeds’ good run of form came to a screeching halt on Saturday, when they suffered a demoralising 4-1 defeat at Elland Road at the hands of Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield.

After the international break, they will take an away trip to Rotherham on Saturday 2nd April.
