Despite the transfer window slamming shut at 5pm yesterday and all Sky Sports News and other outlets’ Hollywood style drama quietly leaving with it to make way for their coverage of the new season getting up and going, numerous transfer windows are still open.

Significantly, League 1 and League 2 aswell as Scottish clubs still have till September 2nd to make deals and can take players from higher divisions as part of this. Further, foreign leagues have extra time too.

This is ultimately helpful for Leeds, who may have designated their time to securing deadline day signings such as Meslier and Nketiah rather than the strenous task of offloading unwanted players from the wage bill.

Here’s who we could still see leave:

Connor Shaugnessy: With Shaugnessy apparently in the ‘Tom Pearce zone’, aka being asked to train away from Thorp Arch. It’s likely a loan or a transfer will be found for him in the lower leagues, or maybe even a return to Scotland as the 23 year old spent part of last season on loan at Hearts.

Laurens De Bock: As previously reported, De Bock is expected to complete a loan move to Amis in the coming days. Having 3 years left on his contract was never going to help matters.

Vurnon Anita: Though pictured training at Thorp Arch, Anita is still firmly out of Bielsa’s plans. It’s thought that Vurnon is being rather difficult and is reluctant to expect a drop in wages, but there is interest existent from Greek side Panathinaikos. Leeds may be forced to stomach a big loss on this one.

Ouasim Buoy: The 26 year old spent last season on loan at PEC Zwolle for the third time in his career. It’s unknown whether this will be made permanent or not.



  1. Cibicki? As for De Bock well, with his long contract he must be about the worst Leeds transfer ever closely followed by Anita.
    We have come a long way now from throwing money around on such ‘players’!
    I have to say that in the last days of this window apart from Nketiah not one deal from any Championship club has the wow factor. Just the usual journeymen merry go round.
    Lee Johnson said last week it takes at least 30 training sessions to get a new signing up to speed playing the Bristol way. Yea, we saw that last Sunday Lee.
