The seven Leeds United players who will go on free next summer

This group of players will depart Elland Road in the summer of 2024.

Leeds United has a roster that should compete for promotion from the Championship.

Leeds were relegated from the Premier League last season, but they returned to the second division of English football with a collection of players who, on paper, should have been towards the top of the Championship.

They were able to retain some of their top players from the 2022/23 season, such as Wilfried Gnonto and Dan James, while also bringing in new players such as Ethan Ampadu and Joel Piroe.

They’re in a good position to compete for top-tier football, but if they don’t get promoted, they’ll lose some key players for free at the end of the 2023/24 season. That will make life much more difficult for them the following time.
The club captain will just be a few months away from completing a decade at Elland Road when his contract expires.

Fortunately for him, he’s had a positive impact on the club’s recent success. On the first day of the season, against Cardiff City, he appeared to be injured and had to be carried off on a stretcher.

The Scotsman’s chances of a rapid return to play did not appear to be promising at first. He was sidelined with a foot injury for eight weeks before returning to face Hull City.

Losing him for free would be devastating to the club.
From club captain to the man who wears the armband when Cooper is unavailable. Losing your captain would be terrible enough, but losing both of your top senior leaders in the locker room would be a real gut punch for Leeds.

Ayling has also been at the club for a long period, having arrived in the summer of 2016 from Bristol City.

He appeared in 93 Premier League games for the Whites during their three-year reign; he started every league game in the club’s first season back in the top flight.
He’s been a fairly steady performer, so finding someone to replace him would be difficult, especially if he leaves and the team doesn’t get anything in return.
Leeds‘ Swiss Army knife is the Northern Ireland international. There aren’t many footballers who can cover as many positions on the pitch as he does.
Dallas was sidelined for more than 18 months after breaking his femur against Manchester City in April 2022.

Even though he hasn’t played for the club in a long time, everyone knows how valuable he can be to the team when he’s healthy.

The former West Ham United full back joined Leeds on a one-year deal this summer, and the club may be kicking themselves given how brilliantly he has performed for them.

He has a Sofascore match rating of 7.3/10 thus far this season. According to Sofascore, this places him among the top 20 players in the league so far this season.

It would be surprising if Leeds were not working on a new contract for him.

Shackleton appeared to be on his way out of Leeds earlier this summer, but has impressed Daniel Farke as a flexible full-back alternative.

Last season, the Leeds academy graduate had a disappointing loan spell with Millwall.

The winger has spent the most of his time at the club on loan, but his appearances for Leeds have mostly been on the bench.

With players like Gnonto, James, Jaidon Anthony, and Crysencio Summerville ahead of him in the pecking order, Poveda may be considering his next move.
