Leeds United are unlikely to be particularly busy in the January transfer window when it opens in just under two months.
This is according to a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post, which claims the club ‘do not anticipate a frantic window’ as Marcelo Bielsa has strict rules on the size of his squad.
Bielsa has used 22 players in all competitions so far this season, though he has had to deal with a number of injuries to key players including Pablo Hernandez, the midfielder, defender Gaetano Berardi, and Patrick Bamford, the forward, who was bought from Middlesbrough for £10million earlier this year.

Izzy Brown was also signed by Leeds over the summer to provide further competition in the attacking positions, though he has been struck on the sidelines with an ACL issue since before his move to Elland Road.
However, the YEP says both players are starting to make steps forward in their recovery and hope to be back before the end of the year.
Their returns will hand Bielsa a huge boost heading into the second half of the season, and Leeds will not have to utilise the transfer market to replace the pair.
The Elland Road club currently sit top of the Championship, ahead of Norwich on goal difference. Both sides have won 30 points from 16 matches, but only five points separate the leaders from Blackburn Rovers down in eighth.
