Leeds fans must think Christmas has come early. Two emphatic wins from two Championship games, a very encouraging transfer window and a new manager with global superstar status among the footballing hierarchy.
That’s not all. Reports have now emerged that one of League One’s best players, Peterborough’s Marcus Maddison could be on the verge of descending on West Yorkshire in an initial loan move with a view to a permanent deal according to his chairman Darragh MacAnthony, via the Peterborough Telegraph.
The 24-year-old assist machine laid on 16 goals for his Posh teammates last season, as well as contributing eight goals and has been linked with a move to Elland Road most of the summer.
In a switch which bears all the hallmarks of a fellow lower league attacker, Kemar Roofe, who joined from Oxford United in a £3 million deal two years ago, Leeds could once more reap the benefits of cherry-picking the best talent from the lower echelons of English football.
With an abundance of potential, especially an eye for a pass, plus energy to burn, there is no doubt that he is a Marcelo Bielsa player and will fit right in at the Championship promotion hopefuls, where the sky’s the limit.
