Seven players have waved goodbye to Leeds United this summer either on loan or permanently – but more could follow the likes of Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha. With six weeks left in the window, Victor Orta is hard at work.
Phillips and Raphinha have gone for a combined £100million. Liam McCarron has joined Stoke permanently, Laurens De Bock to Zulte Waregem. Tyler Roberts on a loan to buy, and both Jamie Shackleton and Charlie Cresswell on loan.
But there are eight other players that could still go. Here are the situations surrounding those eight possible exits:
The winger has recovered from a broken leg sustained while on loan at Blackburn – but has lost his no.7 shirt to Brenden Aaronson. The YEP report he could leave on a loan-to-buy deal. He has little future at Elland Road.
Costa struggled at Valencia last season – proving to be an expensive mistake at £15million. Represented by super agent Jorge Mendes, he will not struggle to find a new club. Leeds will be hoping Mendes can sort out a permanent exit.
The 35-year-old has no future at Leeds, after returning from Elche after a loan. There have been some reports he could even be released. The fact Leeds may look at bringing in a back-up goalkeeper shows Casilla is likely to go soon.
The one Leeds will not want to lose. TMW reports that Newcastle have made a £24million bid for Harrison – but Leeds want £36million. They will be desperate to keep him, given Raphinha and Phillips have gone. One to watch.
Reports prior to Australia suggested Davis would be on his way to Ipswich Town. However, he has impressed Marsch – who recently said he is on trial this summer. His deal ends next summer, and the likelihood is, he is sold.
The midfielder has been in and around the Leeds side during Jesse Marsch’s reign. But he was not a part of the Leeds side that went to Australia. The YEP say League One clubs are keen and he may feel he has to go on loan.
Summerville is an intriguing one. There has been interest, most notably from newly-promoted Nottingham Forest. His deal ends next summer, but Leeds will be keen to extend his contract – rather than let the Dutch winger depart.
Drameh is part of the squad currently in Australia. But ultimately, he is third-choice right-back. Rasmus Kristensen is first choice and Luke Ayling is injured, though will return a key part of the side. Drameh may go on loan again.
