The summer transfer window is an exciting time for fans of all 20 Premier League clubs with the chance to see their team welcome new faces and strengthen the ranks.
Leeds United supporters are no different and Jack Harrison’s permanent £ 11million addition after two seasons at the club shows the impact he has had on Marco Bielsa during that period.
The whites have also injected the money into a new left-back with Junior Firpo from Barcelona. Bielsa has brought in the 24-year-old to replace the outgoing Ezgjan Alioski, whose contract expired on July 1.
With two newcomers to Matt Jackson’s U23 team, Leeds has its future in view in this transfer window. First comes Amari Miller from Birmingham City. The winger appeared in five championship games for the Blues last season. Second, Wigan Athletic’s Sean McGurk signed, was a standout performer in the FA Youth Cup last year, scoring three goals and one assist in five games for the Latics.

The excitement is expected to continue with the whites who recently linked Dan James and Kristoffer Klaesson.
But not only Bielsa’s team welcomed new players to their team. A host of high profile clubs have joined their ranks with new additions and Leeds Live is here to place the top five Premier League transfers to date.
5 – Boubakary Soumare – Leicester City
Last season’s FA Cup winner Leicester City caught up with Boubakary Soumare from Ligue 1 champions Lille with his transfer kitty.
The midfielder was a key member of the French squad last year, playing over 40 games in all competitions.
His move to Leicester will be interesting as Brendan Rodgers’ team now has several good players who can act in defensive and central midfield.

4 – Ibrahima Konate – Liverpool
Liverpool have strengthened their defense with Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig. The 22-year-old will fight for a starting place in Jürgen Klopp’s team with the returning Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez and will give her defensive line the much-needed solidity.
3 – Emiliano Buendía – Aston Villa
A record signing for Aston Villa, Emiliano Buendia, could be exactly what the club need next year to finish in the top eight.
The Argentine has Premier League experience having played for former club Norwich City during the 2019-20 season.
Buendia was voted Championship Player of the Season for his performance in the Canary Islands last season. He scored 15 goals and assisted his teammates 17 times and helped lead the club to the second division title.
2 – Junior Firpo – Leeds United
Firpo will look to make an immediate impact on Whites fans next season after sealing his move from Barcelona this summer.
The 24-year-old is expected to be first left-back under Bielsa and will try to make a contribution in both the offensive and defensive stages of the Argentine.
Firpo played six times for the Spanish club in the Champions League last season, including the full 90 minutes against Dynamo Kiev in a 4-0 Group G win against the Ukrainian side.
1 – Jadon Sancho – Manchester United
Although the move has not yet been confirmed, a deal has been agreed and Jadon Sancho’s transfer to Manchester United has yet to be confirmed.
One player who could cause big problems for Firpo in the opening game of the new Premier League campaign when the two clubs clash at Old Trafford on August 14th, the quality of Sancho is undeniable.
The 21-year-old has been an integral part of Borussia Dortmund’s squad for the past four seasons and has made a total of 137 appearances for the black and yellow. During that time he has scored 50 goals and contributed 64 assists.
His return to English football will be one of two paths and Manchester United fans will hope it will be a success.
