Former Leeds United defender Danny Mills has told Football Insider that Leeds United have enough depth in central midfield unless they suffer a “horrific” injury crisis.
The ex-Whites and England defender suggested Leeds may enter the January transfer market for a new midfielder if something happened to their current options.
The Yorkshire giants failed for the second successive summer to add a new centre-midfielder.
“You’ve got Kalvin Phillips in that position, we know how good he is. You’ve got Stuart Dallas who can play that position as well when Junior Firpo comes back and is back at left-back. You’ve got Pascal Struijk who can play that position as well.
“You’ve got players in and around that who can fit in just in case something happens to Kalvin Phillips.
“I don’t think it’s a huge issue. There’s enough in there.
“If something horrific happens there’s nothing you can do about that anyhow. You just have to sort of accept that’s what it is. You can’t plan for every single eventually. Unless you’re Chelsea where you have two XIs of internationals.
“Sometimes you have to accept that you have injuries. You try and plan as best you can but you can’t plan for every eventually. If somebody picks up a season-ending injury, you can’t legislate for that.
“If something like that happens then maybe you have another look in January.”
