Sky Sports pundit David Prutton has slammed Leeds United for leaving it late to make signings in the transfer window.
Leeds have only recently completed two loan signings, seeing Lewis Baker and Jamal Blackman arrive on season-long deals.
Supporters have criticised the club after they took the mickey out themselves for not being very active in the window.

Ex-Whites midfielder Prutton has pressured director of football Victor Orta telling him to up his game.
“Three weeks is quite a short space of time to get these new players in and I’m not saying Leeds need to get bundles of new players in because head coach Marcelo Bielsa wants to work with a specifically sized squad with specific quality,” he said on the Yorkshire Evening Post website.
“But this is when someone like director of football Victor Orta really needs to step up.”
Prutton added: “Leeds are known to be in the market for a centre-forward, a midfielder, a full-back and a winger. You are talking about pretty much a whole new spine to the team. The fact they are still needing to sign these players with less than three weeks to do it is ridiculous because the top targets would have been snapped up or at the very least they would now have a good idea of who they are going to play for.”
