Lucas Odunston could leave Elland Road this summer, without ever playing a senior game for the Whites, as Football Insider understand the rising star has been told he has no future with United.
The 18-year-old’s scholarship contract with us comes to its end in June, and there are currently no plans from our board to put a senior deal or an extension on the table.
It leaves Odunston free to move on in the summer, in the hopes of furthering his career elsewhere, without his new side being required to pay the Whites a transfer fee.
Odunston’s situation is said to be an attractive scenario for Hull City, as the Tigers have already reportedly taken our academy product on trial, ahead of a potential transfer.
Several other unnamed Championship and Football League sides are also claimed to be keeping an eye on Odunston’s availability.
If the young right-back does move on in the summer, it will draw his Leeds chapter to a close after two-years, having joined in 2017 alongside Jack Clarke.
Unlike Clarke, though, Odunston has been resigned to the Under 18s following an injury, which made a senior call-up increasingly unlikely.
