3 January Transfers that could get Leeds United Promotion

Jack Marriott

A number of Championship clubs including Leeds United, Aston Villa and Sunderland with the 23 year-old currently topping the League One scoring charts with 17 goals and 3 assists.
Pierre-Michel Lasogga has failed to impress on his loan from Hamburg this season despite 5 goals to his name and Leeds looked short of fire power at Elland Road on New Years Day as they failed to see off Nottingham Forest.
Marriott has worked his way up the ranks well and with the injected pace and finishing ability he offers a step up to the Championship could prove to be pivotal to improving Leeds’ promotion hopes.
Adam Clayton
Leeds are rumoured to be joint favourites with Aston Villa to resign Adam Clayton with Sheffield Wednesday interested also.
It was a controversial move when Clayton departed Elland Road for the short journey to local rivals Huddersfield but a move which Clayton denies he forced.
The midfielder has been out of favour somewhat at the Riverside this season and there is no doubt that his ability and experience at this level would be invaluable to Leeds at this stage in a position that they are slightly short in.
Paul Dummett 
A move that would potentially only be a loan if it were possible, Dummett was an influential part of Newcastle United’s promotion last season but ha been sidelined since the opening weekend.
The left-back made his return against Manchester City before the new year and it is a position that many feel Leeds need to strengthen in.
Gaetano Berardi has been playing out of position and filling in at left-back and has become a cult-hero at Elland Road with his passionate performances.
The Italian has said himself however that Leeds need better than him if they are to achieve promotion which, despite his good performances, is probably correct from an attacking point of view.
