Five players Leeds United will look to sell today

Leeds United will be hoping to trim the fat of their squad before the window closes across Europe.

The transfer window may be shut in the Championship but that does not mean the end of dealings at Leeds United for the summer.

The transfer window across much of Europe shuts later today and whilst Leeds United cannot bring anyone to Elland Road today, there are still those that could be on their way out of the club. 

Leeds United will undoubtedly want to get some of these players off the books today. 

Laurens De Bock, for example, will be hoping to find a new club. The Belgian left-back looked all set to join Greek side Aris Thessaloniki on loan earlier this summer. Unfortunately, that deal has seemingly collapsed.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reported last week that there is now domestic interest in the player, who spent last season on loan at KV Oostende. His departure seems the most likely today.

As for Vurnon Anita and Ouasim Bouy, it looks bleak. The pair currently have no future at Elland Road and there are no current reports detailing any interest in the pair. 


Leeds might have to get creative to be rid of the pair or keep them around the under-23s until January. It would certainly not be a surprise, although there are no reports suggesting this if Leeds released the duo from their current contracts.

Conor Shaughnessy is another player that Leeds are seemingly willing to move on. Bolton Wanderers, as reported by Leeds Live, were keen earlier this summer. Now the Trotters have been taken over it remains to be seen if the League One side revitalise that interest. However, the management team has changed at the club so the interest may not be valid. 

Another Leeds outcast who is seemingly not up for grabs today is Eunan O’Kane. The Irish international is still recovering from a broken leg suffered on loan at Luton Town last season. Leeds Live suggests an exit in January is more likely. 

So Leeds will be looking to find new homes for the quartet of De Bock, Anita, Bouy, and Shaughnessy today. If they are not moved on, then it appears they will have a long wait until January.
