So the nice people at the Yorkshire Evening Post put together a list of when all of the contracts for the current players at Leeds run out. It’s not pleasant reading.
Only one player that has played in the first team this year has a contract that runs out this season, and that’s Tom Pearce, the young left-back who broke through at the end of the season. Other than that, almost every other player is under contract until 2020 or 2021, with a few even contracted until 2021.
So basically a bunch of players that were’t good enough are stuck at Elland Road, and one that was brilliant and needs a new contract, doesn’t.
On to the links.

The other semi-final featured upstart Santos Laguna facing off against Club América. Santos carried a 4-1 lead from the first leg and were able to snatch a 2-2 draw against América, meaning that they will face off against Toluca in the finals for the Clausura 2018 title. [FMF State of Mind]
