A look at the latest Leeds United transfer rumours on Thursday, March 3.
Marsch identifies first Leeds target
The transfer window certainly will not be at the top of Jesse Marsch’s agenda at the moment with Premier League survival much more important.
However, he will know in the back of his mind which players he is planning to target at the end of the season and Djordje Mihailovic is reportedly top of his wishlist.
According to Manuel Veth of Transfermarkt, the CF Montreal star is one of the players who he hopes to bring to Elland Road.
He is the second USMNT midfielder to be linked with a move to West Yorkshire in the last couple of months after Leeds had a couple bids for Brenden Aaronson rejected in January.

Dortmund to rival Leeds for out-of-contract midfielder
Another midfielder who has supposedly been the subject of interest from Leeds is Boubacar Kamara of Marseille.
He was available in January for a cut price because his contract is due to expire at the end of the season but there weren’t any teams willing to match the French side’s valuation.
However, there will be plenty of sides around Europe that are monitoring his current situation with a view to signing him for free in the summer.
As per Sport Bild’s report, Dortmund are one of the teams expected to be in the race for his signature as the Bundesliga side are preparing for something of a rebuild at the end of the season.
Morison makes Drameh permanent signing claim
One of the few pieces of business that was conducted at Elland Road in January was the loan departure of Cody Drameh to Cardiff.
It was a deal that many fans felt should not have been agreed given the amount of defensive absentees at Leeds.
While there is certainly some sense in that, his move has been fully justified as he has been brilliant for Steve Morison’s side.
The former Leeds striker claimed that it is unlikely the Bluebirds will be able to agree a permanent deal for the young right-back.
He told our sister site WalesOnline : “Would we be able to get any of those players back next year? Probably not. But we might be able to get the next one in line, because they know what we’re doing.”
