According to Phil Hay, Wilfred Gnonto and Tyler Adams could sign new deals at Leeds United this summer.
The duo have been heavily linked with moves away from Elland Road after Leeds were relegated to the Championship. Adams was in talks with Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa, while Everton still have concrete interest in Gnonto.
However both players are still at the club, with Adams nearing a return to full fitness, and Gnonto having arrived to pre-season training. Hay believes Leeds are ready to tie the duo to the club long-term:
“I suspect so with Gnonto and potentially with Adams as well. I think it would have to be some carrot with it to persuade them that it was the right thing to do. It’s slightly different for Gnonto to Adams, they’re at different stages in their career, Adams clearly USA captain already and has the World Cup coming up, but I don’t necessarily feel that for either of them a really good season in the championship, a promotion year in the championship would damage them or their reputation”
