🚨REPORT : YEP Journalists Engage in Lively Debate on Leeds United’s Summer Transfer Strategy


Leeds United reporters Joe Donnohue and Graham Smyth engaged in a lively debate on the Inside Elland Road podcast, discussing the potential reintegration of Danish international full-back Rasmus Kristensen this summer. Kristensen spent last season on loan at AS Roma after struggling in the Premier League with Leeds.

Donnohue argued that Kristensen could have a similar resurgence to Junior Firpo, citing his attacking potential and fundamentals, which were not fully utilized during his time at Leeds.

He believes that in the Championship, Kristensen’s defensive limitations can be mitigated, and his ability to deliver low crosses into the box could be an asset.

Smyth countered that Kristensen was signed for Jesse Marsch’s high-intensity style, which doesn’t align with Daniel Farke’s more patient and controlling approach.

He questioned Kristensen’s technical proficiency, passing ability, and willingness to adapt to a new style, citing his struggles in the Premier League and pre-season. Smyth also raised concerns about Kristensen’s defensive abilities and whether he would be willing to take a financial hit to return to Leeds.

The debate highlighted the different perspectives on Kristensen’s potential contribution to Leeds United’s promotion push in the Championship next season. While Donnohue sees him as a potential asset, Smyth has doubts about his suitability for Farke’s style and his ability to adapt to the demands of the Championship.
