Laurens De Bock could seal Leeds exit this summer

Leeds United could see one of their fringe players leave the club this summer as interest appears to grow.

According to a report by Voetbal 24, Laurens De Bock has become a transfer target for Beitar Jerusalem as the August deadline fast approaches.

The Belgian outlet does not state whether a loan move or a permanent transfer could be in the offering, however, it would likely be a temporary deal to begin with as the player still has four years left on his present contract.

The 25-year-old has only been at Elland Road since January, however, it does not appear that he will be involved in Marcelo Bielsa’s plans for the current season as he has not yet featured for the Whites.

In fact, he has not even been named as part of the matchday squad for their Championship games and was an unused substitute during their League Cup clash with Bolton Wanderers.

The left-back has struggled at times for Leeds since his arrival from Club Brugge and has made a couple of mistakes when on the field.

The Verdict:

De Bock has turned out to be another one of Victor Orta’s flop signings since he joined the club as director of football.

However, with the addition of Barry Douglas from Wolverhampton Wanderers, it would not have been a surprise to see the 25-year-old out of the team.

A loan move would appear to be more likely for the Belgian and Bielsa could be ready to give the green light for him to make a swift exit from Elland Road.
