Eminent signing  to start, Willy Gnonto out again – Leeds United predicted XI v Birmingham City

Daniel Farke could hand soon-to-be new Leeds United recruit Joe Rodon a start ahead of their Championship clash against Birmingham City on Saturday (12 August).

Leeds got their season off to an unwanted if exciting opening day draw against Cardiff City where Crysencio Summerville provided a stoppage-time equaliser to make it 2-2 and kill any hopes of three points for the Bluebirds.

However the Whites, according to The Athletic (8 August), are close to completing a loan move for Tottenham Hotspur defender Joe Rodon, who could come in at an ideal time following captain Liam Cooper’s injury against Cardiff.

Ethan Ampadu slipped into the centre-back position in Leeds’ EFL Cup clash against Shrewsbury Town, but we predict Rodon to come straight into the deal ahead of the injured Cooper if his deal is completed on time.

He will partner with the opening goalscorer against Shrewsbury, Pascal Struijk, alongside full-backs Sam Byram and Luke Ayling.
