​Leeds boss Bielsa: I will not panic buy

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa is not in the mood to panic.

The veteran coach believes they can get promotion with the players at his disposal.

Leeds are top of the Championship by two points from Norwich City, with 26 games played.

But Bielsa does admit it is tough to be without as many as seven players due to injuries and suspensions.

"We are lacking players," Bielsa is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.

"If the club can bring in players, it will be only if they are better than the players that we have.

"In the next few weeks, we will have Dallas, Berardi, Phillips, Brown, Bamford and Douglas with us, so among the absences, we will have a reduction.

"That's why I clearly say that if nobody comes, we will solve the problems anyway."
