Last Word on Football understands from trusted sources that as many as eight Leeds United senior squad members are actively looking for a move away from the club, in addition to having received and rejected bids for Wilfried Gnonto and Charlie Cresswell. This was supported in our interview with Graham Smyth of the Yorkshire Evening Post, who mentioned that we are already aware of bids having come in for the Italian.

Leeds United Transfer News Hotting Up with Eight ‘Looking for the Exit Door’

Why are Players Looking for a Move?

Each player is likely to have his own reason to want a move away from the club. For example, Robin Koch’s loan move to Eintracht Frankfurt was likely driven by a motivation to get back in the Germany squad in time for Euro 2024, with others such as Brenden Aaronson at Union Berlin likely just seeking top-level football to continue their development.

The ultimate factor pushing people towards the exit is the lack of Premier League football at Elland Road. Understandably players want to find their way to the top, and whilst a lot of the squad are staying to return through promotion, others are choosing to move in pursuit of their goals.

Eight Leeds United Players Pushing for a Move

Leeds United transfer news could be hotting up as a result of a swathe of players striving for an exit. Those listed by our source include Wilfried Gnonto, Max Wober, Crysencio Summerville, Jack Harrison, Illan Meslier, Cody Drameh, Pascal Struijk and Charlie Cresswell. As mentioned, the Italian winger has already had a bid rejected, with The Athletic reporting that the bid likely came from Everton.

Whilst this is a significant proportion of the squad, fans are likely to be relieved that some players do not feature. Tyler Adams and Luis Sinisterra are key examples, both of whom could play a fundamental part in the club’s push to reach the Premier League. After 49ers Enterprises’ takeover of the club, the Whites are likely to make transfer business quickly and cement their squad for the year ahead.
