By the looks of things, the Marcelo Bielsa cull is yet to have finished and the next exits could well involve Eunan O’Kane and Caleb Ekuban.
When the Argentinian arrived he made it clear that a serious clear-out was on the menu.
Indeed, he said the Leeds squad needed to lose 15 players and so far we have lost close to that this summer.
According to Phil Hay, then, O’Kane and Ekuban seem to be potentially next after being told that they can go after a fan asked about them:
Pennington is a target again. Ekuban and O’Kane told they can go. Just depends on offers.

This would make sense as well.
O’Kane has been slated for a while by our fans and looks well down the pecking order with him training with the U23 side this summer.
Ekuban, meanwhile, for as nice a guy he seems to be, is not a good enough striker at this level and despite our shortage of options up top it makes sense that he is moved on.
The question is; who will take them?
