Yet another player has left Elland Road, seemingly not good enough to help Leeds in their charge towards the top flight.

Although this one isn’t quite as big as if Kalvin Phillips left, so don’t get too carried away. The club confirmed today that academy player Sam Dalby had left the club to join Premier League side Watford.

Dalby failed to make a single senior appearance for Leeds, since he moved from Leyton Orient in January of 2018, and failed to make any impression when he was sent out on loan to League 2 side Morecambe in the latter half of last season.

However, when the club announced on Twitter that the deal had been completed, there was a very odd response to the news.

You had a couple of fans complaining that Leeds were selling too many players, and that they’d have nobody left if they kept it up. Which is wrong for two reasons; this was an academy player, so it’s not like they’re shipping out Kemar Roofe. And Leeds have already made a multitude of signings so far this summer that I think they can afford to let a youngster go.

Whilst a few others decided to take a more rational response to the news. The first group really could learn a lot from these guys.
