Quoted by Football Insider, former Leeds United player Noel Whelan has suggested that defender Gaetano Berardi might well want out in the summer window.

The Whites have been excellent so far this season but are waiting to see if the campaign is going to resume with a current earliest date set for the start of May.

Hopefully, though, if and when it is back in play, the Whites can get themselves promoted to the Premier League and end this wait for once and for all, and then look to add to their side in the summer window in order to stay there.

Could you see it happening?

Yes

Yes

No

No

For Noel Whelan, though, there is a chance that the Swiss defender could be one of those wanting to leave the club in the summer window:

“He’s also a man that can make that decision himself – he might not want to stay, he might want to play regular football.

“That’s the decision he’s got to make – a bit-part player with the first-team if they go up into the Premier League or full-time, week in, week out, be one of the main men at a very good, middling Championship side.”

Many love Berardi for his commitment to the cause and when Marcelo Bielsa first came into the club he was arguably his favourite defender of all of those on offer.

He has suffered with injuries this season, though, and the defence has looked particularly solid this year so, naturally, he has found minutes hard to come by.

It’s up to Berardi to choose, then, but you do sense that playing Premier League football week in week out would see his flaws exposed a great deal more than they are in the Championship.

He’s a likable character to have around the club, but he must do what is best for his career.
