Top three Leeds United players of the 2023/24 season

Overall, Leeds United have had an impressive campaign, and several of their players have played a key part in their promotion push to go straight back up to the Premier League.

There are undoubtedly more players than this who have contributed to their success so far, but these three players have topped the charts for Leeds and won the most awards.

Summerville has enjoyed a very successful campaign and has recently won Championship Player of the Year after topping Leeds’ records for goals scored, goals and assists, and player ratings.

The tricky winger has scored 17 so far this season which is the most by some distance compared with his other colleagues at Elland Road. And as the 22-year-old is still relatively young for a footballer, he will undoubtedly improve and develop into an established Premier League player one day.

He joined Leeds back in 2020 from the Dutch team Feyenoord for an undisclosed fee, but this season is the first one where he has hit the right form as he has stepped up to the plate following fellow winger, Raphinha’s departure to Barcelona a couple of years ago.

He has also been named in the Championship team of the season for 2023-24 which means that the big Premier League clubs may be scouting him in the summer, but hopefully Daniel Farke can persuade him to stay.

Another player who has turned his Leeds career around is Rutter. When former manager Jesse Marsch initially signed him for £35m when they were still in the Premier League, he did not convince that he was good enough and spent the majority of his first season at Elland Road on the bench.

However, he has flourished under Farke since he moved into the number ten position and has bagged 15 assists so far which is the most out of anyone in the squad.

The final player who has excelled for Leeds United this season is 18-year-old Gray, the great-nephew of club legend Eddie Gray. He has established himself as the first-choice right-back this season and has managed to pick up an impressive 41 appearances in all competitions so far.

This has not gone unnoticed as England manager Gareth Southgate has backed him to play for his country one day which is a great milestone for the talented prospect.

Gray joined Leeds at under nine level and progressed rapidly through the ranks before earning his scholarship back in September 2022.

This season he has won Young Player of the Season for the Championship so Leeds will need to tie him down on a long-term deal if they don’t want him being headhunted.
