Leeds defender will NOT leave on a free – Report

According to LeedsLive journalist Beren Cross, Leeds United will demand some sort of fee for Robin Koch.

Earlier today, a report from BILD claimed that the German defender had a clause in his contract that could see him leave for nothing if Leeds were relegated. Koch is reportedly attracting interest from teams in the Bundesliga, Serie A, and Premier League this summer.

Beren Cross of LeedsLive, however, says the clause does not exist:

“In the absence of a director of football or head coach, chief executive Angus Kinnear is currently heading up transfer dealings. Kinnear is resigned to selling Koch this summer, but LeedsLive understands he will not walk away for nothing.

“Reports on the continent have suggested a relegation release clause has been triggered in Koch’s contract, which allows him to now leave for free, even with another year left on his deal. Those reports are understood to be wide of the mark and Leeds fully expect a fee for their defender’s services this summer.”

The German’s contract expires in 2024. Koch arrived at Elland Road for around £13million in 2020.
