Leeds United: Whites seeking to release Ouasim Bouy from his contract

Leeds United: Whites seeking to release Ouasim Bouy from his contract - Leeds United

Leeds United are hoping to pay off midfielder Ouasim Bouy after leaving him out of the club’s Premier League squad.

Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa had a busy summer transfer window, spending just under the £100m mark as he brought in the likes of Rodrigo Moreno, Diego Llorente and Raphinha.

With Bielsa seemingly settled on his preferred players, Bouy was left out of the club’s 25-man Premier League squad and currently remains a frozen-out character at Elland Road.

What next for Ouasim Bouy at Leeds?

Arriving at the club in 2017 on a free transfer from Italian giants Juventus, the 27-year-old has failed to make a single appearance for Leeds and his future remains in doubt.

Football Insider have now looked closer at the midfielder’s future, discussing his current contract which runs until next summer. The website reported that officials from Leeds are keen to pay off the Dutch midfielder, whose agent is Mino Raiola, and terminate his contract.

Valued at £293,000 by Transfermarkt, Bouy is said to be on a contract worth £197,600 per year, which could see him earn a total of £790,000 if he remains at the club until next June.

What has gone wrong for Bouy at Leeds?

At the age of 27, the midfielder – who can also play at centre-back – has very much been a journeyman, having had eight clubs in his career.

With the emergence of Kalvin Phillips at Leeds, Bielsa was always going to struggle to find a place in his starting XI for the Dutchman and it now seems like the Yorkshire club want to clear him off the current wage bill.

The player is within his rights to hold out for the money owed to him, and he could do just that after seemingly not gaining a loan move or transfer out of Elland Road this summer.
