Victor Orta talks to offthepitch.com about the club’s transfer strategy this season at World Football Summit in Madrid.

Money tight as club focuses on loans and continuity.

Leeds United’s director of football Victor Orta says he believes the club’s loans strategy can help lift the club into English football’s top tier.

Speaking exclusively to offthepitch.com, he said: “We need to keep the same goal with financial restrictions (FFP). We need to keep the goal of promotion. 

“After the summer transfer market we are really happy that I think we improved the squad, keeping the economical restrictions. This is not really easy with the politics of loans but the situation we needed to assume this summer.”
