Bielsa is a long term admirer of Dhanda and believes he can get the most out of the England international.

Leeds are desperate to make an impact in the winter transfer window.

Yan Dhanda would provide a good variety to Leeds United’s midfield.

According to the report,”Leeds United are eyeing Swansea City midfielder Yan Dhanda. The Daily Mail says Leeds are interested in signing Dhanda this month. The 22-year-old midfielder has proved influential so far in the Swans’ campaign, with the Welsh club right in the hunt for Championship promotion. Dhanda, formerly of Liverpool, is attracting interest from the Whites, as well as Bournemouth – as they prepare to lose David Brooks. As for Leeds, manager Marcelo Bielsa is considering the possibility of losing Tyler Roberts this month, and Dhanda has reportedly been eyed as a possible replacement.”


The Swans are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the midfielder, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.

Yan Dhanda ideal fit for Leeds United?

If Yan Dhanda is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Leeds.

Yan Dhanda has all the skillset required to be a success story at Leeds. Therefore, it makes sense for Marcelo Bielsa to step up his attempts to bring the England midfielder to Premier League side.

The 22-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Leeds squad and would be a good buy in the winter transfer window.

It will be interesting to see whether Leeds United will make their move during the winter transfer window.
