Liam Bridcutt: Why I think Leeds need to sign him permanently


According to many local reporters, Leeds are still very interested in bringing in the Sunderland midfielder Liam Bridcutt, however, the main sticking point is his wages. Whilst on loan at Leeds United last season, Liam Bridcutt scored no goals, created 17 chances and provided one assist. For most midfielders these stats aren’t too impressive however, Bridcutt is more of a defensive midfielder and therefore did not venture up the field into creative situations. The more impressive side to Bridcutt’s gameliam-bridcutt_ is his passing. He completed 1024 passes last season with a pass accuracy of 81% of which 87% were forward passes.

  1. I totally agree with you Rob, about Bridcutt and I’d be happy with Leeds signing Bridcutt, another central defender, another striker and a back-up left back, but does anyone know why Leeds not signed anybody since Cook was sold, over two weeks ago.
    Is the Cook money, going to be used on signings or is Cellino trying to sign more players on tiny fees, free transfers or even on-loan ?
    My guess is that Cellino does not want to sign anymore players until last minute, so that he doesn’t have to pay anymore wages, during the pre-season, which is absolutely crazy and no way to prepare for the new season, when results must improve and Garry Monk’s future depends on that.
    Is Cellino not bothered anymore or has he been on holiday for the past two wasted weeks ?, when more new signings could have been settled into the squad, during the current pre-season games.
