Seven Leeds United players likely to never play for the club again.

This summer, Leeds United’s transfer market is set to see some changes.

There will also be individuals who do not want to stay after leaving the club owing to loan provisions in their contract over the summer, and who need their future at Elland Road decided as soon as possible so that the club can focus on incomings for Daniel Farke.

Some of those may return to the fold in some capacity, but nothing is definite in football, and several of them may be on their way out, with two exits confirmed. Robin Koch has committed to a pre-contract with his current loan club Eintracht Frankfurt, while Luis Sinisterra signed a permanent contract with AFC Bournemouth in February ahead of the summer. Others will join them in due course, beginning in June and continuing into the future.

There will be players who have already played their final game for the club, whether they were in the first team this season or on loan for the campaign. Here, we look at all of the players who are expected to have played their final game for Leeds.

Diego Llorente

Diego Llorente joined AS Roma on loan midway through last season. Relegation prompted another move for the Spaniard, as it was reported in the summer that he would return to the club, with the possibility of a permanent contract.

He is unlikely to want to return to Leeds this summer, but he has pleased the Serie A heavyweights enough to warrant a permanent move.

Marc Roca

Marc Roca made 32 league appearances for the Whites last season, shining early on in his relationship with Tyler Adams before faltering after the USMNT captain was injured in February.

He has made a strong impression with Real Betis in Spain, which should make it simpler for Leeds to sell him, if not to Betis, then to one of the country’s elite clubs.

Jack Harrison

Jack Harrison’s future with the club appears to be ended after Everton signed the winger on a season-long loan in the summer, and he has been fairly involved at Goodison Park since. If Everton survives and can free up finances for him, that is most likely where his future will lie. If not, there will be plenty of interested Premier League clubs elsewhere.

Luke Ayling

The right-back has been a club veteran for many years. He had been with the club for nearly eight years, but was loaned out in January despite appearing in the early stages of the season. His playing time reduced, and Ayling moved to Middlesbrough, where he has been a regular under Carrick. Luke Ayling’s Leeds career appears to be ended.

Lewis Bate

Not granting Lewis Bate a loan in the summer was a mistake, as the former Chelsea prospect spent last season on loan in the third tier with Oxford United and impressed by all accounts, and has now moved to MK Dons on loan, effectively ending his career with Leeds, similar to Ayling’s loan. This summer, there may be interest in playing at a higher level than League Two.

Ian Poveda

Ian Poveda, who was on loan with Blackburn Rovers and then Blackpool in the Championship, has also struggled to break into the first-team this season. A successful loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday, on the other hand, will almost certainly help him secure a deal in the second division next season.

Cody Drameh

The prospects of Cody Drameh signing to new terms at Elland Road are close to none. For whatever reason, the youthful right-back has frequently been a peripheral figure for Leeds, failing to deliver the same performances as he did while on loan at Cardiff City and Luton Town. A move elsewhere in the Championship is possible again this summer.
