Three Leeds United loan players who could shine next season

After relegation from the Premier League last season, Leeds United saw a mass exodus of players leave on loan. Depending on how the season ends, some may be pushing for a place back in the squad.

Thirteen players have left the club on loan since last summer, many of whom had been brought in for big money just a couple of transfer windows before.

Some have performed well, others not so much. Luis Sinisterra made the permanent move to Bournemouth after his initial loan, and Brendan Aaronson has started to find his feet in Germany.

Some may still have a future at the club. Here are the Leeds Press’ top three.

Rasmus Kristensen – Roma

Since making the move to the Italian capital, Kristensen has had a decent season, making 25 Serie A appearances, scoring once, and getting two assists.

More importantly as a defender, he’s helped contribute to six clean sheets for the Giallorossi.

There is no option for Roma to buy the right-back in his loan deal, and with Sam Byram and Jamie Shackleton set to leave the club once their contracts expire at the end of the season, keeping Kristensen might well turn out to be the best option for Leeds United.

Max Wober – Borussia Monchengladbach

Ethan Ampadu has been a revelation for Leeds United since he joined from Chelsea last summer, but with Joe Rodon only on loan, the Whites may have to look elsewhere come the end of the season.

Rodon seems to want to make the move permanent, but should the worst case scenario happen, Max Wober would be a good option to have at the back.

Leeds signed centre-back Wober in January 2023 for £11m as they looked to improve their defence to avoid relegation last season. Unfortunately he was unable to do so.

Just like Kristensen, there is no buy option in the deal with Gladbach.

Jack Harrison – Everton

It’s not easy being an attacking player in a Sean Dyche side. Harrison has been one of Everton’s better players this season, without being outstanding.

Three goals and three assists in his 25 Premier League appearances may not sound like much, but that’s a contribution towards 19% of Everton’s league goals this season.

The Toffee’s financial situation is well documented, they’ve been deducted points twice throughout the season for breaking PSR rules and regulations. 

It’s unlikely they’ll be able to afford to bring Harrison to Goodison Park permanently anytime soon.
