With the English transfer window now concluded, Leeds have experienced what you could only describe as a successful summer.
The club have not only competed well in the transfer window but also command an unbeaten record in all competitions so far this season.
Heres a list of the completed signings Leeds brought in over the summer:
Pontus Jansson - £3.6mil
Hadi Sacko - £1.6mil
Madger Gomes - Free
Mateusz Klich - £1.5mil
Matthew Pennington - Loan
Caleb Ekuban - £300k
Felix Wiedwald - £500k
Vurnon Anita - Free
Samu Saiz - £3.1mil
Ezgjan Alioski - £3.2mil
Ouasim Buoy - Free
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson - Loan
Jay Roy Grot - £700k (£1.5mil)
Andy Lonergan - Free
Pawel Cibicki - £1.5mil
Pierre-Michael Lassoga - Loan
Incredibly that's 16 signings in a summer of recruitment for Leeds. It was clear after last season that Leeds did not have the squad depth to compete higher in the Championship.
With Radrizanni, Orta and TC working in unison the club have been able to locate key areas and fill any gaps the club were experiencing. These players now join a squad of already established Championship players to create a well rounded, well managed side that could challenge for the top six this season.
It wasn't all incoming at the club though, Leeds have lost a few key players from last season and some fringe players who didn't have an opportunity to continue their development at the club.
Jordan Botaka - Free
Charlie Taylor - £6mil compensation
Billy Whitehouse - Free
Giuseppe Bellusci - Free
Marco Silvestri - £400k
Lee Erwin - Undisclosed
Chris Wood - £15mil+
Liam Bridcutt - £1mil
Rob Green - Free
Souleymane Doukara - Free
Apart from the loss of Bridcutt, Leeds should not be trouble by the departing players. Wood's 30 goals last season will be covered by incoming talents Samu Saiz Ezgjan Alioski, Caleb Ekuban and potentially one of the three new incoming forwards.
The loss of Bridcutt however is one the club could have avoided, a very talented holding midfielder who can allow some of our more attacking midfielders to push forward. However, with no first team football guaranteed, the decision was ultimately with the player.
Overall, Leeds set out to improve a dwindling squad with a severe lack of quality. That aim has now successfully been completely and Leeds are looking ahead to the Championship season with potential and confidence.
An incredible fact is that Leeds finish the summer with money in the bank. Having spent £16.5million on acquisitions, the club have received an incredible £23million on outgoings, meaning that they've not just focused on the clubs immediate future, but its entirety.
Memorable additions so far have been:
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson - a talented left back with the strength and ability to push forward when attacking. A very good second option to Gaetano Berardi.
Samu Saiz - the magician, the marvel, the man to get Leeds promoted. Five goals for Leeds so far and looking incredibly adapt in the pocket for the club.
Egzjan Alioski - almost a package deal with Saiz. The winger has already showed his skill, movement and scoring ability and the fans are impressed.
Felix Wiedwald - time will tell whether Alex were right in allowing Rob Green to depart the club but the German stopper seems to be filling a rather large pair of gloves with success. Four clean sheets in a row in the league for Leeds right now.
Jay Roy Grot - resembling a post modern Mountain from GoT, Grot almost towers over every player. On Saturday he showed he's more than just a target man and this 19-year old could be a great prospect at the club.
Pawel Cibicki - described on TalkSport as a 'massive steal' Cibicki had been linked with some of Europe's top clubs before joining the club on deadline day. It looks like the winger/forward could be a welcome addition to an attacking side.
A good summer, a strong start and a lot of talent within the squad. Leeds fans should rejoice at the work done at the club this summer.
There's a tangible excitement around the club and it's evident why; Leeds are back.
