‘Expected to leave’: Phil Hay delivers Leeds deadline day transfer updates – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Leeds United are not looking to sign any players on deadline day, but there could be some departures.
Phil Hay of The Athletic has provided the latest transfer update on Twitter where he has claimed that Rafa Mujica is expected to leave today.
According to reports from Leeds Live, Conor Shaughnessy’s time at Leeds United has also come to an end.
The Whites have terminated his contract by mutual consent, and he has joined Rochdale permanently.
The 24-year-old made 15 appearances in all competitions for Leeds after joining the club on a free transfer.
He played for Heart of Midlothian, Mansfield Town and Burton Albion on loan from Leeds, but hasn’t featured at all this term.
Jay-Roy Grot is another player who is likely to leave. The 22-year-old has a contract at the club till 2021, but he is not in Marcelo Bielsa’s plans.
Hay claims that the likes of Laurens De Bock and Eunan O’Kane are on loan moves currently, but Mujica is expected to leave.
Earlier this month, TeamTalk claimed that Leeds are looking to offload him.
The 22-year-old forward plays for Spanish club Real Oviedo, but is yet to make his competitive debut for them. It was claimed that Mujica’s agent was in talks over a permanent move.
Las Palmas were also keen to secure Mujica’s services, while Numancia have had shown interest in the player.
Leeds signed him on a three-year deal, but it seems his career at the Yorkshire club is over. He has not been given a proper chance at Leeds and is expected to leave permanently by the end of the day.
