Two more players depart Leeds United on loan deals with view to permanent transfers

Two more Leeds United players have today departed the club.

Laurens De Bock and Conor Shaughnessy have both agreed loan moves with views to a permanent transfer in the summer.

Left-back De Bock spent the first half of the season on loan in League One at Sunderland AFC but was recalled in order to look for a move elsewhere. He has certainly landed on his feet with a move to Holland in the Eredivisie with ADO Den Haag, managed by Alan Pardew.

De Bock, who once made the Belgium senior squad and was capped 55 times across all youth levels for them, was absolutely and consistently horrendous in a Leeds United shirt. His performance against Derby County being referred to by the Leeds fanbase as “De Bocky Horror Show”.

Conor Shaughnessy has agreed a move to League One side Burton Albion.

Shaughnessy had a fairly promising start to his Leeds career and established himself as a member of the first-team, although he didn’t get lots of football, working himself into the Republic of Ireland U21 team.

Marcelo Bielsa initially talked him up as an option once he returned from injury, but his performances once fit again were poor and he never got a look in at Leeds again.

Much like De Bock he was recalled from a different loan to get a better move, this time from League Two side Mansfield Town.

Both players have no futures with the club so hopefully they have good loan spells and can secure their permanent exit from the club.
