With the transfer window shut, Leeds have time to re-evaluate their squad ahead of any potential deals in January.
With this in mind, Victor Orta and his network of worldwide scouts have been busy away identifying potential targets for Leeds to continue their progress in the transfer market.
One player who has caught the Spaniards eye is fellow compatriot Fran Merida. The former Arsenal prodigy is currently enjoying a journeyman like career in the Spanish second division, an area Orta has been focussed on during his time at Leeds.
The 27-year old Merida has been a former teammate of Spanish sensation Samu Saiz as they played together at SD Huesca last season.
Any potential move would result in Merida's second spell in English football having spent three years at Arsenal being honed as the 'next Cesc Fabregas' prior to his move to Athletico Madrid.
Now playing at Osasuna, Merida is a natural born midfielder who can play in both attacking and defensive roles and could be a complimentary part of the Leeds United midfield.
What's your say? Do you think Merida could realise his potential at Leeds? Or is Orta bear king up the wrong tree? Have your say in the comments below.
