It wasn't the busiest of deadline days at Leeds United, just a couple in as Leeds looked to strengthen their week points for the promotion challenge ahead.
Deadline day dragged on for what seemed to be an eternity as I constantly kept an eye on my newsfeed for confirmation of incomings at Elland Road.
The almost certain deal for Ashley Fletcher seemed to capitulate at the last second with West Ham unable to locate a striker and Sergi Canos was set to join Brentford for an initial £2.5million. Leeds' try-before-you-buy option didn't seem to sit well with Norwich.
Missing out on Fletcher could be costly, we needed an out and out striker wi h good knowledge of the FL and I feel like he would have been a fantastic addition. Canos? Never seen enough of the former Liverpool youngster to make a real judgement, he did nothing against us in the cup.
Now on to the deals we did get over the line; Alfonso Pedraza and Modou Barrow. Both wingers, both blessed with immense pace and both on loans. Pedraza however has an £8.5million permanent transfer fee should Leeds be promoted.
And first I thought that figure was exaggerated, like Sacko's €60mil but out clause. But the more I look into the player and the interest that swarms about him the more I understand why both clubs have agreed to this figure. Pedraza was wanted by the likes of Villa, Everton and Southampton and we've done well to get this one over the line.
Pedraza is a winger/attacker for all intensive purposes and will most likely line up on the left side of midfield should he be selected against Huddersfield on Sunday. He's got a lot of skill, bags of pace and loves running at defenders. He looks like the real deal but I will no longer make judgements on YouTube video heroes.
The second signing made was another winger but with a lot of Championship experience; Modou Barrow.
The 24-year old is a surprise outgoing at Swansea having made 20 appearances for the club this season. Bags of pace and skill and easy on the eye when it comes to attacking play, I think Barrow could catch quite a few defenders out before May.
He's not the striker we wanted but he can play upfront with ease and his pace could still fit in to our one man up top system. My only worry would be if he can add the goals to his game that we need.
It wasn't the worst window, we've brought in two talented wingers in a position we did need to strengthen, but it could have been better.
