All the latest Leeds United news and transfer rumours as the focus shifts to Bristol City.
Leeds United have turned their attention to Bristol City after resuming their winning ways.
Daniel Farke’s men defeated Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday night, and now that they are back in the top six, they will be eager to continue their winning streak at home this weekend. Bristol City, on the other hand, returned to winning ways this week and will arrive in Yorkshire with renewed confidence.
Meanwhile, we’ve compiled a list of all the latest Elland Road news and transfer rumours.
Farke is alleged to have prevented one of his players from leaving during the summer transfer window.
According to Voetbal Krant, the Leeds board expected to lose Pascal Struijk this summer as part of a series of departures, but Farke made it clear that he would not lose the Dutchman, believing he would be an important element of his and his side’s promotion bid this season. Struijk only signed a new contract last year, and he is currently under contract until 2027.
Roca lets his guard down.
Marc Roca, a Real Betis loanee, has spoken to the Spanish press about his time at Leeds United, where he was demoted from the Premier League last season. In a new interview with Spanish source MARCA, Roca claims he does not regret his time in the Premier League, characterizing it as a period of ‘personal growth’ even though the squad was not successful on the field.
“I had a lot of fun, and I had a lot of participation.” “I believe it was a year of a lot of personal growth,” Roca remarked. “It was also a year filled with a lot of games, a lot of intensity in the Premiership, and playing against the best.” Leeds has grown on me. I enjoy it because it ultimately provided me with the opportunity to play in the Premier League, and I felt a strong connection with the club from the start.”
Mateusz Klich, a Whites fan, made a joke about his Patrick Bamford concern in response to a Leeds United incident during the club’s Championship promotion push.
Bamford made his second appearance since recovering from a hamstring injury as a second-half substitute in Wednesday night’s 1-0 home triumph over QPR, when the Whites 9 swiftly caused issues.
After forcing Asmir Begovic into a superb save and setting up a fantastic chance for Pascal Struijk, Bamford was involved in a spectacular incident in the 93rd minute that resulted in Rs keeper Begovic getting sent off. Struijk’s long ball put Bamford in on goal, and the striker beat Begovic to the ball before landing on the deck.
Begovic was then sent a straight red card despite his protests, and QPR manager Gareth Ainsworth said after the game that both Bamford and Begovic had informed him there had been no touch.
Ainsworth intends to have Begovic’s dismissal overturned, but ex-Leeds player Klich spotted the irony when video of the “tackle” was circulated on social media. Klich responded to a video of the incident on Twitter, writing, “Terrible tackle, hopefully Pat is ok.”
