The Leeds United management team are actively engaged in ensuring a swift return to the Championship.
With 6 players already released, negotiations with those players that are earmarked as part of the clubs promotion chasing plans will begin in earnest. It is believed that these are namely Rui Marques, Matt Heath and Tore Andre Flo.
With so many players out of the club and despite the administration woes that have plagued the club of late, Dennis Wise and Gus Poyet are already looking at potential transfer targets.
Club Technical Director Gwyn Williams told the official website: ‘We’ve done the pre-season fixtures now and put those in place, and Dennis, Gus and I have been looking at players,’ explained Gwyn.
‘It’s difficult because we are in administration and therefore we have to wait, but we’ve been doing a lot, particularly during the latter part of last season because we knew we had a number of players whose contracts were coming to an end.
‘We’ve been looking at replacements, making enquiries, and are looking at what we can and can’t do.’
With regards the tour, Williams will be heading out to Germany to ensure that the facilities are in place for Leeds’ pre-season tour that comes in July. ‘
We had opportunities to go to South Africa, America and Germany, and we were also half-offered opportunities to go to Sweden and Norway,’ he told Yorkshire Radio.
‘In the end we stuck with this one. The games are good and the travelling is good.
‘I will go across and inspect everything. They’re three big games and hopefully we’ll get a lot out of it.’
