Leeds likely to offload Eunan O’Kane and Caleb Ekuban

Leeds likely to offload Eunan O’Kane and Caleb Ekuban

Leeds United are continuing their efforts to improve their squad this summer despite their frustrations during the current transfer window.

Marcelo Bielsa is keen on bringing a number of players to Elland Road to strengthen his side ahead of the upcoming Championship campaign, however, their problems with trying to get recruits has been well documented.

The Argentine has also been busy in offloading a number of players he deems surplus to requirements at the Whites, which he has been far more successful at doing and it looks as though two more men could be on their way out.

According to Phil Hay, both Eunan O’Kane and Caleb Ekuban could be heading for the exit door with both players not featuring for Bielsa so far during their pre-season friendlies.

The Yorkshire Evening Post journalist took to Twitter to state that both would be looking to find moves away from Elland Road as they clearly do not feature in the manager’s plans.

The Verdict:

O’Kane and Ekuban were a number of players at the start of the summer not to be considered in Bielsa’s first-team plans and their lack of involvement in the two friendlies so far would suggest to confirm those thoughts.

The fact that Yosuke Ideguchi has been handed the number 14 shirt, a number once worn by O’Kane, could be a major hint about the Irishman’s future at Elland Road.

The Leeds squad is already looking a little thin in places, however, the Argentine is thought to be working hard on bringing a number of recruits to help with his rebuilding efforts.

Leeds fans – thoughts?
