Harrison, Wober and more: What the summer could hold for Leeds United’s loaned out players

Leeds United are deep into an impressive run of form but they’ll need to be strong to hold off challengers for an automatic promotion spot.

Leeds United currently sit 2nd in the Championship table. They are level on points with Ipswich Town and have a gap to 4th-placed Southampton.

Fighting for promotion will be the Whites’ priority, but one eye will be on plans for the summer transfer window and what it holds.

Leeds United’s and Daniel Farke’s plans for the summer will depend on how the remainder of this Championship season plays out, but some decisions can be taken earlier than that. This is especially so when it comes to players currently on loan away from Elland Road.

Here, we look at what the summer could hold for the seven players currently on loan away from Leeds United

 

Jack Harrison

Winger Harrison is on loan at Premier League strugglers Everton but is on a long-term deal with Leeds that runs until 2028.

If Leeds United are promoted, it seems unlikely that he will return to Elland Road. Dan James and Wilfried Gnonto seem to have the right flank tied down, so his future could be best served elsewhere

Max Wober

Wober was one of the 2022/23 Premier League signings for Leeds United who looked solid enough to do a job for the Whites. However, like many others, relegation to the Championship saw him wanting to move on.

His contract runs until the summer of 2027. He is currently on loan at Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach and doing well. There are reports that the German club are trying to raise money to fund a permanent deal, so he could move on this summer.

Brenden Aaronson

The American forward had a disappointing spell with Leeds United in the Premier League, with the fans never taking to his lightweight displays.

With a deal running until 2027, it has been reported that he will be up for sale when his Union Berlin loan ends.

Rasmus Kristensen

Danish international Kristensen never convinced Leeds United fans that he was the answer to any questions about needing a right-back. He asked for a move upon relegation and is currently on loan and doing well at Roma in Serie A.

He could be another with a future best served away from Elland Road even if promotion is achieved.

Diego Llorente

Spain international Llorente, like Kristensen, is on loan at Roma from Leeds. This season so far he’s featured in 22 Serie A games.

There has been talk that the Italian side wants to snap him up for the €5m permanent option (around £4.3m) before cashing in for a higher fee of around £10m. It looks unlikely that he will feature again for the Whites.

Who is this?

Marc Roca

Roca is another Spaniard who looks destined to not find a way back at Elland Road after leaving to pursue his football elsewhere. Roca has been performing well for Real Betis in La Liga, scoring two goals and adding two assists.

Reports from Spain say that he could return to Betis if Leeds United fail to gain promotion – with the transfer fee falling to £12m.

Sam Greenwood

Greenwood’s current contract with Leeds United runs out this summer. The rated 22-year-old is currently on loan at Middlesbrough where he has scored five goals and registered three assists in the Championship. There is an option for Boro to buy him for £1.5m at the end of this season and it seems unlikely that the Whites will offer him a new deal.

Cody Drameh

Drameh came from Fulham’s youth setup but has not cracked the first-team at Elland Road and looks to have missed his chance.

His successes have come on loans out of the West Yorkshire club. He is currently at Birmingham City, where he has three assists in 23 appearances. The Blues do have the option to buy at the end of this loan, but that all revolves around what the then-out-of-contract Drameh wants.

Darko Gyabi

Gyabi arrived at Leeds United for around £5m from Manchester City at the same time Kalvin Phillips was heading in the opposite direction. Plymouth Argyle have taken him on loan as he continues to struggle with breaking through consistently at Leeds United.

With a deal that runs until the summer of 2026, Leeds will likely keep a hold of him, perhaps lining him up for a new loan.

Luke Ayling

Ayling endeared himself to the Elland Road faithful with his all-action style and never-say-die attitude. He served the club well but that looks like service that is at an end.

Ayling is currently on loan at Middlesbrough in a half-season in a deal that will see his current Leeds deal run out. The right-back is another player who has played his last game for the Whites.

Ian Poveda

Colombian international Poveda is another Leeds United loan player destined to move on in the summer. Sheffield Wednesday are keen to acquire him at no cost when is contract runs out too. Poveda is on loan at the Owls and has one assist in seven appearances for the South Yorkshire outfit.
