have been reacting to a claim about promising young defender Niall Huggins.

The 20-year-old only signed a new contract back in December that would have seen him stay at the club until 2023, but whether it be for financial reasons, tactical reasons, or any of a whole host of other choices, it looks as if his time could be up early.

Can you remember where Leeds finished in these league seasons? First up: /19

According to sports journalist Peter O’Rourke, Leeds United have decided that the ‘highly rated’ left-back is ‘free to find a new club’. The left-back spot is a position that Marcelo needs to focus on this summer, but it seems as though Huggins won’t be featuring in any of those plans.

Huggins was a regular in the club’s U23 side as they stormed to a league title and clearly impressed a number of these fans with his performances, as they seemed surprised to hear the news that he was set to depart:

“That is surprising…thought he could in time have become our left-back.”

“Oh my, surprised at this. A very good player in there”
“Seems odd, this one. Looked class in the 23s last year.”
“Strange one that. Maybe more behind than meets the eye.”
“Surely this can’t be true. Can play various different positions and still young. One of the best players for the U23’s last season.”
“Very shocked by this. The lads got bags of potential”

Do you think that Alioski will stay at Leeds?

No, he is away

No, he is away

Yes, he will stay

Yes, he will stay

It will be interesting to see where he ends up going. With a number of clubs supposedly ‘weighing up moves’ for him, his success elsewhere will dictate whether or not Leeds ended up making the right move.
