Leeds United are parting ways with two stars in Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, but could see others depart too.

Leeds’ ambitious start to the summer transfer window under Jesse Marsch has been met with the blows of losing two key players.

Agreements with top Premier League clubs have been reached to see both Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha leave Elland Road.

They aren’t the only two players capable of making significant moves this summer, as much as Leeds are unlikely to allow it.

Here, we explore two other senior players who could leave this summer…

Rodrigo

If Leeds are intent on adding a new striker to the fold to compete with Patrick Bamford, it doesn’t send a great message to the club’s record signing.

Rodrigo was placed in a hugely important role last season under Marsch, and stepped up to the plate initially before his form tailed off later in the campaign.

There is a top-quality player there and we all know it, but we haven’t been able to see that consistently enough to warrant his £27million move a success.

With the World Cup around the corner and Rodrigo not currently in the Spain squad, a move back to La Liga could be something he seriously considers.

If Leeds got an acceptable fee, it might be something that they ponder too.

Is £42million enough for Phillips?

Jack Harrison

With Raphinha and Phillips allowing Leeds the chance to reinvest with big signings, the lineup could be looking a lot stronger next season.

Recently-linked attackers Cody Gakpo and Charles De Ketelaere could be on the cards to come in, and both would be guaranteed starters.

Should Leeds be in a position where Harrison is no longer a guaranteed starter, offers might be more tempting to cash in on.

With Newcastle United and Tottenham monitoring the winger, a big approach could come in.
