Leeds United defender Barry Douglas could be set to join former Whites owner Massimo Cellino at Brescia, according to a fresh transfer report.
The Lowdown: Douglas set to leave Leeds
The 31-year-old spent last season on loan at Championship side Blackburn Rovers, making 30 appearances in the division and registering two assists.
The Latest: Link-up with Cellino rumoured
The Verdict: Interesting next step
It makes perfect sense for Douglas to move on this summer, with Leeds going up a gear as a club and the 31-year-old seemingly no longer at the club’s level.
He should be remembered as a solid servant during the Whites’ stint in the second tier, though, playing 27 times in the Championship back in 2018/19 and also featuring intermittently as they won promotion the following year.
While Serie A feels like it could be too strong for him now, a move to Serie B makes more sense and represents an intriguing choice for the £13,000-per-week defender. What Leeds fans will make of him possibly teaming up with Cellino is another debate.
