🚨BREAKING NEWS : Leeds United Prioritizes Financial Stability Over Big-Money Signings, Says Keith Wyness


Former Everton chief executive Keith Wyness has stated that Leeds United will not be making any “big money” signings this summer, instead opting for “proven Championship players” to aid in their promotion bid. This comes after Leeds missed out on promotion to the Premier League last season, losing to Southampton in the play-off final.

Wyness, who now runs a football consultancy, believes that manager Daniel Farke will focus on bringing in players with Championship experience to ensure promotion, rather than splurging on big-name signings.

This approach is likely due to the club’s financial constraints, with chairman Paraag Marathe warning of “sacrifices” needed to comply with financial rules, including potential big player sales.

Wyness emphasized that big spending will only occur if Leeds returns to the top flight, stating, “I don’t think there will be big signings. But there will be good Championship signings.

There’s a big difference between building a team for the Championship and then what you do once promoted.” He added, “Right now, they have to focus on getting out of the Championship. Daniel Farke is going to get them close again.

He’ll be happy to divest away some of the biggest stars, end the PSR issues, and then bring in some proven Championship players. That won’t necessarily mean big money. But they need a certain quality, a certain style, and a certain experience.”

This approach may see Leeds part ways with some of their top players, but Wyness believes Farke will bring in the right talent to secure promotion and eventually push for success in the Premier League.
