So all of the signs are still pointing to Leeds and Marcelo Bielsa coming to an agreement sometime soon, and when if he does come soon, it looks like some of the players will be cutting their holidays short.

Victor Orta has reportedly told the players to expect to be back a week earlier than originally schedule, 18 June instead of 25 June, as the new coach would want the extra time to bring in a new style of play.

Again, this all points to Bielsa coming to Leeds and a lot of deals will happen right after the coaching situation gets resolved.

On to the links.
