Leeds United’s retained list contains very few, if any, surprises.
| #LUFC confirm retained list ahead of the 2019/20 season— Leeds United (@LUFC) May 18, 2019
Almost everyone is retained and no senior players had their contracts up, so it was just youth players that were either set to be released or set to be retained. As it was, only Lucas Odunston, Joshua Rae, and Alex Wollerton ended up being released at the end of their contracts. The club also exercised options on Will Huffer and Kamil Miazek, meaning that both of the Leeds U23 keepers will be around next year. Could one of them be sent on loan or could one of them nick a place in the first team?
