The ‘silly season’ is upon us and we at We All Love Leeds would like to contribute in our own small way. Once a week we will post the latest rumours from legitimate sources, ones that we have heard but please feel free to leave your own rumours in the comments section at the bottom.
Sylvain Ebanks Blake
Relegated Wolves forward Ebanks Blake has been linked with Leeds lately, he has been released by Wolves and is currently recuperating from a broken leg sustained in April and that is likely to scupper any deal.
Doyle is an old Reading hand that McDermott knows well. He was part of the relegated Wolves side last season and could sign for a host of Championship clubs this summer. He is continually linked to Leeds.
Former Leeds favourite and one of McDermott’s promotion winning Reading side. He will be out of contract at the end of June and a number of clubs are said to be weighing up moves for him. McDermott has since said that he is happy with the left backs we already have at the club and Harte will not be returning.
A former McDermott favourite at Reading and he has been released by the club after five years service. A re-union with his former manager could be on the cards after he has been linked with Leeds for most of the summer.
Upson is a free agent and a number of clubs are said to be ready to offer him a contract for the coming season. Leicester are thought to be the favourites for his signature but Leeds are apparent contenders as well.
The Manchester City defender currently has one year remaining on his deal at the Etihad and he spent time on loan at Oldham and Blackpool last season. The player himself has hinted at a move to Elland Road this summer.
