A source from Leeds United has said that they are now planning to offload Ian Poveda, Robbie Gotts and Bryce Hosannah before the transfer window ends.
The Lowdown: Mass exodus
As per Football Insider, Niall Huggins is in advanced talks to join Sunderland on a permanent deal.
Should Leeds sell Poveda?
It looks as if Marcelo Bielsa is looking to trim his squad first of all before bringing any more new signings in, with less than two weeks until the window shuts.
Senior players like Pablo Hernandez and Ezgjan Alioski have also departed, and it looks as though three more youngsters are set to follow in their footsteps.
The Latest: More out the door?
According to Football Insider, Poveda, Gotts and Hosannah could well follow Huggins out of the door at Elland Road, as per a club source.
They all failed to make the 20-man squad for the 5-1 away loss to Manchester United on the opening weekend of the new 2021/22 Premier League season, and so may all need moves away in order to gain more regular game time.
The Verdict: Sell sell sell
The Yorkshire club have a big enough squad now to cope with the top flight, and selling these players could help raise some funds to potentially bring one or two more top quality additions in before the window closes.
Poveda is the more senior out of the three, but only managed a mere 16 matches in total over all competitions last term (Transfermarkt), while Hosannah has never actually made a senior appearance for the Whites despite being 22 years of age (Transfermarkt).
Gotts impressed while on loan at Salford City last campaign, as manager Richie Wellens claimed that he was ‘outstanding’ in one performance in January in particular.
However, his game time at the Peacocks has also been very limited (Transfermarkt), and so should also be moved on.
