The two players most likely to leave Leeds United before today’s deadline

The transfer window will finally shut completely this evening, after being left slightly ajar for Premier League clubs to do business with those in the Football League. 

For Leeds United, it means potential arrivals, with the likes of Todd Cantwell and Louis Sibley both said to be of interest to the Elland Road club.

However, there are some players that might be on their way out of the club before the end of the day.

One that seems like a done deal is that of Scottish defender Barry Douglas. A popular figure around the club, unfortunately, Douglas has found himself out of the first-team for a number of months and needs to leave to play regular football. 

Blackburn Rovers look to have concluded a deal for the player, with a report from Lancashire Live suggesting a breakthrough has been made with the Leeds director of football Victor Orta. 


It has been rumoured a medical has already taken place and Douglas will seemingly train with, and join, the Ewood Park club tomorrow.

Conor Shaughnessy is something of a forgotten man at Leeds. After initially looking like being a part of Marcelo Bielsa’s plans when he arrived in West Yorkshire that never proved to be the case. 

The 24-year-old has spent time on loan with Hearts, Mansfield Town and Burton Albion in recent times and Leeds will surely be looking to find him a new club by the end of the day.

Charlie Cresswell and Oliver Casey are two young and impressive defenders who could easily be attracting interest, as Leeds have plenty of competition at centre-back.

However, the West Yorkshire side are relishing the idea of having a successful under-23 squad, and the duo are equally likely to remain and play in that side. 

So Douglas and Shaughnessy seem likely to be the only two players on their way out of Leeds today, following Robbie Gotts’ move to Lincoln City last night.
