2024 is going to be another busy year just as 2023 was for Leeds, but hopefully in a more positive sense with Daniel Farke achieving what he set out to do at the first time of asking.
An immediate question for him at the end of this season will be to assess how his multiple loaned out players have done, and how to navigate the likely permanent sale of a lot of them.
What’s the latest with Max Wöber?
Centre-back Max Wöber isn’t expected to be welcomed back at Elland Road after stating his commitment to this season with Farke, only to turn his back and head to Borussia Monchengladbach not long after.
He is enjoying a decent start to life in the Bundesliga, despite the goals continuing to leak for his side with 16 conceded in seven league games so far.
German outlet Rheinische Post have now claimed that the Austrian has already won over those at the club in order to pursue a permanent deal.
The 25-year-old looks to be plugging a number of gaps in the squad in terms of his versatility, as well as the quality he has shown so far for his new club, to the point where the board are already counting on having him permanently.
Monchengladbach’s issue with signing the centre-back permanently is the uncertainty of what division Leeds will be in next season.
Should the Whites not clinch promotion under Farke, then they will be looking at a cut-price deal, but his future remains a mystery if Leeds head back to the Premier League in 2024.
Norwich City v Leeds United predictions
If we can cash in and break even on the £10million we paid to sign Wöber back in January, then that will be a success for next summer.
His form for Monchengladbach won’t be having Farke or the club kicking themselves right now, given that Pascal Struijk is putting in constant performances better than anything Wöber produced for us.
There is a top-flight player there, but we’re better off without him now and he’s done his bit to ensure he won’t be welcomed back.
