Leeds prepared to listen to offers for O’Kane and Anita

Leeds United are thought to still be listening to offers for some of their players as Friday’s transfer window deadline approaches.

According to a report by The Yorkshire Evening Post, Marcelo Bielsa still remains keen to offload Eunan O’Kane and Vurnon Anita.

Both midfielders do not appear to be involved in the Argentine’s plans for the current campaign and could both be offloaded should the right offers be made.

O’Kane featured regularly for the Whites last season during the reigns of Paul Heckingbottom and Thomas Christiansen, however, it is understood that the Republic of Ireland international has been told to find a new side.

It is thought that there is interest in the 28-year-old, however, an offer has yet to be have been made.

Anita is another man that is considered to not have a future at Elland Road, with the former Newcastle United man having struggled to make an impact.

The 29-year-old was hampered by injuries during his time in Yorkshire and could be looking to restart his career somewhere else.

The Verdict:

It’s no real surprise that the club are looking to offload the duo as they both clearly do not feature in Bielsa’s plans.

The players have come in for criticism at times during their time at Elland Road and it does not appear that they will be missed by the faithful.

With the way the club is already playing, it would be difficult to see either of them get back into the first-team set-up and will benefit from making a move before Friday’s deadline.
