Former Leeds star urges the club to get rid of this Victor Orta signing in summer - originally posted on Sportslens.com Former Leeds United star Paul Robinson has urged the club to get rid of Felix Wiedwald.

Leeds want to sign this powerful forward, would be ideal for Heckingbottom's side - originally posted on Sportslens.com Leeds United will look to sign the Nigerian forward Jerry Mbakogu at the end of the season. The Championship outfit tried to sign the Carpi attacker last month but the Serie B side were not keen on losing a key player halfway through the season. Mbakogu is likely to cost around £3.5million and he will add some much-needed pace and power to Leeds’ attacking unit. The Nigerian has scored 6 goals so far this season and he is looking to guide his side to a promotion play-off place in Serie B. Mbakogu is looking to secure a dual Italian passport and once that is sorted, Leeds will be able to complete the transfer without any work permit issues. The Whites signed P...
