Leeds keen on loaning out Laurens De Bock with Fleetwood interested

Leeds United will be hoping to secure promotion under Marcelo Bielsa in the new campaign having drafted in a number of players with even more seemingly in the pipeline. 

The Whites struggled to ensure consistency last season but that shouldn’t be an issue now that a tactician like Marcelo Bielsa is at the helm. Although, it looks as if the South American is sorting out the future of one of his players, as according to The Sun on Sunday (29/07, page 63) (via Football League World), Leeds United are looking to temporarily offload Laurens De Bock after completing the signing of Barry Douglas from Wolves.

The Belgian struggled to work his way into Paul Heckingbottom’s plans last season and suffered an injury setback, as he ended up stagnating behind the scenes at Elland Road.

However, Fleetwood Town’s new manager Joey Barton is willing to take on the defender, as they continue their preparations for the start of the new campaign.

THE VERDICT: 

So, Laurens De Bock is heading for the exits in the form of a loan deal as Marcelo Bielsa continues to ring in the changes at Elland Road.

Indeed, after signing Barry Douglas from Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers it was always going to be difficult for De Bock to earn a place in the side, so a move away will help with his progression.
