Leeds United first team coach James Beattie is looking forward to getting stuck into training today as the Whites continue to try to iron out the mistakes which have led to a poor start to the season.

Beattie, a former striker, was brought in by head coach Garry Monk as part of his backroom staff earlier this summer and is first team coach at Elland Road.

Leeds have lost three of their opening five Championship games, winning just one, and are looking to improve on the training pitch over the international break.

Beattie took to social media to post a photograph of the club's Thorp Arch base and wrote: "Training ready."

Leeds managed to sign just one player on transfer deadline day, bringing in midfielder Eunan O'Kane from Bournemouth on a two-year deal.


However, the Whites' primary target was a striker and they missed out on pushing a deal over the line.

Leeds did want to sign Yaya Sanogo from Arsenal, but it has been claimed Arsene Wenger blocked the loan move from taking place.

The Elland Road side play Huddersfield Town after the international break.
