If there’s something Jesse Marsch’s Leeds need improvement in, it’s their defense, most especially the left-back section.
The Whites’ defence was clearly faulty and worrying last season, and things got worse in late April when “Ironman” Stuart Dallas fractured his femur against Manchester City, likely ruling him out until the top of the calendar 12 months.
But with versatile Junior Firpo’s pre-season injury last week, Marsch needs a right away solution, which Leeds reportedly sought in Stoke City’s defender, Josh Tymon.
In accordance with the Every day Mail on July 14th, 2022, Elland Road’s director of football, Victor Orta, has made a move for the 23-year old.
It was earlier reported that Leeds offered 6 million euros to Stoke for the previous England U-23, who had a incredible season with the championship side last season that saw him involved in 5 goals.
Tymon’s defensive prowess, especially with tackles, interceptions and clearances, will prove helpful to Leeds, whose decisions in defence now include or perhaps are limited to an off-form Leif Davis.
The 2 sides haven’t confirmed a final decision yet, though, so Marsch’s worries are removed from over.
It will probably still be acceptable and reasonable for the Peacocks to amass Josh for a further few tens of millions given his form without delay.
Moreover, the season is just across the corner, and Marsch’s side, because it is without delay, is likely not ready for a Premier League campaign.
