Leeds: Laurens de Bock likely return could result in a challenging summer

Leeds: Laurens de Bock likely return could result in a challenging summer - Leeds United

Losing in the play-offs will have raised plenty of questions about the futures of a number of people at Leeds United.

It might have been ten days ago since that defeat, however, time certainly has not made things any easier at Elland Road as speculation continues to be rife about what will happen over the summer.

Marcelo Bielsa has been at the forefront of sections of the media with questions over his future, whilst some of their talented stars have also been the subject of transfer links as well, i.e. Jack Clarke and Tottenham Hotspur (Football.London).

However, one man’s future seems to be rather clear and it is not with Leeds, or potentially anyone else either.

According to a report by Voetbal Primeur, Laurens de Bock is set to return to Elland Road this summer after a disappointing loan spell with KV Oostende.

The Belgian outfit have recently appointed a new manager who wants to start with a clean slate and it appears the left-back did not do enough to convince him that his future was with him.

And, that news could make Leeds’ summer just that bit more challenging.

Football Insider reported last month that Bielsa had made it clear that he had no desire to have De Bock at Elland Road regardless of the division they would be playing in.

But, if he failed to make a positive impression on a side that finished towards the bottom of the Belgian Jupiler League Pro, then it would be hard to see anyone else looking to take a chance on the 26-year-old.

It would be difficult to see English clubs look to take him as well following a poor six months under Thomas Christiansen and Paul Heckingbottom.

Having signed a four-and-a-half year deal when he joined in January 2018 for a £1.5million transfer fee (The Sun), he still has two years left to run, but Leeds will be hoping they can find someone to take him off their hands.

Leeds fans, do you think the club will be able to offload De Bock this summer or do you think it will be a tough ask? Let us know below!
