Hay reveals that Bielsa could be about to offer one man an unlikely chance

Leeds fans in the Transfer Tavern will have been hoping to see a number of new faces at Elland Road this summer, however, it appears the new manager might be prepared to give some familiar names a chance.

Marcelo Bielsa was named as the new boss last month and, although he is thought to be keen to add a few additions to help strengthen his side, he is believed to be happy with the majority of the squad.

The locals would have been expecting changes to be made if they were to challenge for a place in the Premier League, however, it appears one man may get his chance once again for the Whites.

According to Phil Hay, he believes that Vurnon Anita could be offered a second chance under Bielsa as he revealed that he is not on the manager’s exit list.

The former Newcastle United midfielder, who is currently recovering from an injury, was thought to be one of the men destined to leave Elland Road this summer, however, there is a doubt that may now happen.

Landlord’s Verdict

The Leeds fans in the Tavern will have been surprised with the news that Anita could be handed an opportunity to revive his Whites career, with him being destined for the exit.

The midfielder struggled to make a real impact during the Championship campaign last season, although he was played in a variety of different positions.

Once he returns from injury, he will need to show Bielsa exactly what he can offer Leeds, otherwise, the exit door will look even more likely than it previously did.

Leeds fans – thoughts?
