Yorkshire Evening Post’s reporter, Phil Hay has made a claim on the rumoured Leeds United transfer budget for the coming summer.
The reputed journalist took to his personal Twitter to stake a claim on the funds that would be available at Paul Heckingbottom’s disposal.
However, much to the dismay of the Elland Road faithful, Phil has stated that there would not be much difference in the budget this summer from that which was available last summer for Thomas Christiansen.
It is understood that there is going to be a change in approach at Elland Road this summer, with the focus shifting from quantity to quality in terms of the squad.
Reports have claimed that Leeds United owner, Andrea Radrizzani is aiming to work on his sides wages with increasing the higher limit for wages one of the main priorities. To get this plan implemented, there would be a massive revamp at Elland Road this summer.
The squad size is going to be reduced considerably with the plan of implementing better wages for the worthy candidates.
I don’t see the budget changing significantly this summer. What the club will try to do (and AR has already been quoted on this) is lower the size of the squad to free up wages and potentially raise the upper wage limit.
