BREAKING NEWS : Leeds United Actively Seeking Multiple Signings Following Series of Player Departures


Leeds United are now “actively” looking to sign reinforcements in a number of positions after completing a series of exit deals, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Joe Donnohue announced via the outlet’s website on July 8 that after the successful sale of Charlie Cresswell to Toulouse, the Whites are now looking to add new signings in “a number of key positions”.

The focus comes after “relieving a number of fringe players” during the transfer window so far, with Cresswell following Marco Roca, Jamie Shackleton and Kristoffer Klaesson to leave permanently, while Darko Gyabi, Sonny Perkins and Sam Greenwood have all gone out on loan. .

Leeds United also achieved the headline sale of Archie Gray to Tottenham, with only Joe Rodon signing in the opposite direction as a major factor in the first team, with Alex Cairns now confirmed as back-up goalkeeper.

It’s impossible to argue that the All Whites team isn’t weaker right now than it was when the season ended with a disappointing play-off loss to Southampton.

The agreement on the acquisition of Rodon is potentially important, but it only prevents the playing staff from further declining, as he was already a key loanee last term.

Losing home-grown star Gray is a blow no matter how he’s dressed, and while the departure of Roco, along with the imminent departure of Diego Llorente, is hard to compare, there’s been very little for fans to cheer about so far. summer.

Cresswell’s departure ends a frustrating year-long battle that saw the youngster clash with Farke, while club captain Liam Cooper is also set to leave [TEAMtalk, July 3].

Failing to secure promotion to the Premier League left Leeds vulnerable to further high-profile departures, including Crysencio Summerville [Fabrizio Romano, June 17] and Glen Kamara [Ouest France, July 5].

So another centre-back will certainly be needed, while reinforcements at full-back are likely to be needed due to injuries to Sam Byram and Junior Firp, with the latter’s future still uncertain.

Progress may be needed as Patrick Bamford or Joel Piroe could follow [Daily Mail, July 1], while Jaidon Anthony’s loan spell ends and the possible sale of both Summerville and Willy Gnont [Graham Smyth, June 14] means they wide options rare.

Lose another central midfielder alongside Gray and that too will need fixing, so Farke and his HR department have little time to waste filling the gaps for the new promotion.
