Kyle Lafferty says he has been 'overwhelmed' by interest from LeedsGetty Images

Leeds United manager Steve Evans is hopeful of signing "two or three good players" along with Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty before the January transfer window closes.

Liam Bridcutt became the club's first addition of the winter window on Tuesday 5 January when he joined the Championship side on loan until the end of the season. Leeds also remain in discussions with Lafferty, with Evans recently revealing talks with his Norwich counterpart Alex Neil were underway.

Lafferty intensified talk of a move to Elland Road further when he tweeted he had been "overwhelmed" by the interest from the Yorkshire club. But while Evans is hopeful the club can finalise a deal, he insists the final decision will ultimately rest with Neil.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Evans said: "Our owner has had a few chats with his counterparts at Norwich and I have to let that process take its due course. It is frustrating when you would like to add to the group. He is a young man who we identified from a while out.

"I don't think he has made it any secret he would like to be here, but I have to be very respectful to [Norwich boss] Alex Neil, who ultimately will have a huge say on whether we can get a deal done."

Evans adds, however, Lafferty is just one of the players he is hoping to bring to the club in the coming weeks.

"We are trying hard to make not only Kyle Lafferty happen, but also to sign two or three good players."

While additions to the club are expected, Leeds are also facing the prospect of losing Sam Byram and Lewis Cook, with West Ham United and Bournemouth respectively interested in the duo.
