Leeds United director of football Victor Orta will leave the club at the end of the season, Leeds Radar report.
The Lowdown: Kinnear to resign?
It has been a busy five days at Elland Road following the 4-0 defeat to Tottenham on Saturday lunchtime, with Andrea Radrizzani and the 49ers enterprise deciding to sack Marcelo Bielsa.
Correct to part ways with Bielsa?
No, terrible decision!
It seems as if he won’t be the only Whites official to depart ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, though, with a claim now made on Orta.
The Latest: Orta claim
Leeds Radar posted on Twitter regarding the Whites DoF, claiming he will also depart once the season comes to an end, adding that the 49ers want to bring in their own board of directors.
“Victor Orta will leave Leeds United at the end of this season, along with Angus Kinnear. The 49ers want to bring in their own board of directors, which will likely have a very different structure.”
The Transfer Tavern contacted Leeds Radar about their information, and were told it came directly from a club employee.
The Verdict: Plenty of change…
Radrizzani, Orta, Kinnear and Bielsa enjoyed a strong relationship for three-and-a-half years, however, all four may no longer be a part of the club by the end of the calendar year.
It seems as if Orta and Kinnear will both follow Bielsa out of Thorp Arch by the summer, whereas the San Francisco 49ers have a deal in place to buy Leeds from Radrizzani for more than £400m by January 2024.
Should the club remain in the Premier League for the 2022/23 season under Marsch, it wouldn’t come as a shock if the 49ers exercised their option to take 100% control, meaning fans may have to be braced for plenty of off-field change.
In other news, Leeds could sign one player this summer, according to a journalist. Find out who it is here.
