The Whites are yet to make any new signings in the ongoing window, but are linked with a number of players with just over two weeks remaining until the transfer deadline.
Leeds have been ravaged by injuries to a bunch of key players, while they also saw right-back Drameh push through a loan move to Cardiff City, even though boss Bielsa wanted him to stay.
And the Argentine has revealed that Leeds now need more cover in the right-back area as they have one fewer option in that position following Drameh’s exit
Bielsa also expressed disappointment in himself that young players like Drameh opt to leave the club and not complete the cycle of developing into an elite player in the Leeds first team when more opportunities are likely to open up.
Asked whether he thinks Leeds need more in Drameh’s position, Bielsa told a press conference: “Of course, with a player leaving it is one alternative less, I in particular and the club, we look after the squad that a player forms a part of as a project.
“We make a big effort in the work for each of the players.
“We want cycles to be accomplished but the majority of young players want to leave and for me I look at that as a failure.
“When a young player that is receiving an opportunity wants to leave what other readings do I have then we have made a mistake that we have taken a chance on a player that chooses not to finish a cycle that has an objective to turn him into an elite player.”
It remains to be seen whether Leeds will push for a right-back this month as they look to climb as far away from the drop zone as soon possible in the second half of the season, while also dealing with their tough injury situation.
