According to Phil Hay of The Athletic, at least ten players will be in transfer talks this summer.

Just a few days before the end of the Premier League season, clubs are planning on what to do with their squads this summer. Leeds United is one of them, with the club fearing relegation to the Championship, a lot of players are expected to depart Elland Road.

The potential names include Tyler Adams, Rodrigo, Gnonto, Illan Meslier and Junior Firpo. Others near the end of their contracts, and the rest are already on their way out of the club.

Hay wrote in the article:

“Departures from Elland Road in the coming window could well run into double figures if Leeds are relegated.

“Weston McKennie is certain to leave, however the season finishes. Neither he nor Leeds are minded to activate the option to make his half-season loan from Italian giants Juventus permanent.

“Goalkeeper Illan Meslier has endured a difficult season but his valuation remains relatively high and Leeds were always open to the possibility of accepting a worthwhile offer for him in this window.

“Robin Koch has a year left on his contract and, as a Germany international, would naturally attract bids if Leeds are an EFL club again. So too would Colombia international Luis Sinisterra, a footballer with high-level potential provided he stays fit.

“Jack Harrison has only just signed a new five-year deal but it is understood to include a release clause, and there is ample Premier League interest in him.”

Leeds’ final game of the season is at home against Spurs.
