Leeds United have been forced to look overseas for a new striker in the January transfer window as their efforts to land a domestic option have proven difficult, according to the Yorkshire Post.

The Whites have been in the market to sign a centre forward who can bolster their attacking unit for the rest of the campaign.

Leeds are currently involved in a promotion battle and are placed in second position of the Championship table with 52 points after 28 matches, just a point behind leaders West Brom.

The Elland Road outfit have been linked with a number of Premier League strikers, with the potential for a loan addition to Marcelo Bielsa’s squad.

However, the latest report suggests that Leeds may have to bring in a new striker from the continent to provide competition for places for Patrick Bamford.

The current Leeds striker has struggled for consistency in front of goal, with many of the Elland Road faithful getting frustrated at his wastefulness when presented chances.

The Whites had Eddie Nketiah on loan from Arsenal for the first half of the campaign, but the England under-21 international has returned to his parent club after an unconvincing spell in Yorkshire.

Leeds fans will hope that a new attacker is landed in the next week.

It will be interesting to see if they will be able to land reinforcements before the January 31st deadline.
