Victor Orta’s five best and five worst Leeds United signings as gulf in class shows issue

According to the report from leeds-live, poor recruitment is a major reason as to why Victor Orta has been dismissed from his role as sporting director at Leeds United.Information Guide Nigeria

Orta spent six years at Elland Road but in recent years has seen his reputation among supporters suffer dramatically due to a series of poor decisions. With incoming transfers a key part of his job at Leeds, he oversaw a total of 97 different incoming transfers and loan deals.

Despite the occasional hit, many of those have ultimately not worked out, particularly since promotion to the Premier League. So, with that in mind, here is a look at five of Orta’s best and worst signings in his time at Leeds.

Victor Orta’s best Leeds signings


Orta oversaw the arrival of Raphinha from Rennes on deadline day in 2020 for a fee in the region of £17 million. It is difficult to argue against the Brazilian being the best signing of the Orta era, as he regularly lit up in Elland Road during his two seasons at the club.

Mateusz Klich

The first signing of the Orta era and most definitely up there with the best of them. Established himself as a club legend until his departure earlier this year for both his performances on the pitch, and relationship with fans.

Klich was a key part of the promotion-winning campaign, playing in 45 of the club’s 46 matches that season. Went onto make 195 appearances in total, scoring 24 goals.

Jack Harrison

A player who has always split opinion at Leeds, but one thing that cannot be argued against is the consistency of his output. Harrison is into his fifth season at Elland Road and in particular, since promotion, his goals and assists contribution has been pivotal.NYSC Portal

He hit the 200 appearance mark at Leeds in the defeat at Fulham 10 days ago and has netted 33 goals, and provided 32 assists. Has certainly proved to be great value for money.

Wilfried Gnonto

Orta has wasted countless amounts of cash bringing in young players for big money during his time at the club, but the £4m acquisition of Wilfried Gnonto from FC Zurich last summer shows he does have an eye for talent. Gnonto has surpassed all expectations since his arrival at Elland Road, quickly establishing himself as a key player.

It is a mystery to most as to why Javi Gracia has used him so sporadically, and it is one of many reasons why he has struggled to win fans over. Leeds will be hoping they can keep Gnonto for several more years.

Victor Orta’s worst Leeds signings

Jean-Kevin Augustin

There really is nowhere else to start other than Jean-Kevin Augustin, who may well end up being the worst value for money transfer in history. Augustin joined on loan from RB Leipzig in January 2020, playing just 48 minutes of action, before returning to his parent club before the end of the Covid-interrupted season.

Daniel James

£25 million and sent out on loan just 12 months later, Daniel James is another expensive Orta mistake. James was a player who had long been on Orta’s shortlist and finally got his man at the second attempt in the disastrous summer of 2021.

Junior Firpo

As mentioned previously, the summer after Leeds’ ninth-place finish was unforgivable and alongside James, Junior Firpo was the only other player to join the club. Again, though, it has been a signing that has just not worked out for a variety of reasons.

Brenden Aaronson

Perhaps a little harsh, and age is certainly on his side in terms of scope for improvement, but Brenden Aaronson has been another expensive mistake. Aaronson was chased by Orta for a number of months last year and finally got his man for £25m, a fee which has turned out to be another considerable overpayment.JAMB Result
