Fulham make loan approach for Leeds United’s Brenden Aaronson

Fulham have reportedly made an approach to sign Brenden Aaronson on loan from Leeds United.

Leeds are bracing themselves for a mass exodus after being relegated from the Premier League last season, bringing an end to their two-year stay in the top flight.

The Yorkshire club, who are currently without a permanent manager, could lose the likes of Tyler Adams and Crysencio Summerville

Diego Llorente is expected to return to Roma on loan after spending the second half of the 2022-23 campaign with Jose Mourinho‘s side.

The central defender could be joined by Leeds teammate Rasmus Kristensen, who is also wanted by the Italian club on a loan deal.

A recent report claimed that Crystal Palace have identified Wilfried Gnonto as a potential replacement for Wilfried Zaha.

There is also said to be interest in Aaronson, who joined Leeds from Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg for £24.7m last summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Fulham have made an approach to take advantage of a loan clause in Aaronson’s Leeds contract.

The report claims that the West London club are yet to meet the full conditions of the relegation clause that allows Aaronson to leave on loan.

Fulham boss Marco Silva has identified the 22-year-old as someone who can play the number 10 role for his side next season.

Aaronson, who has earned 29 caps for the USA, made 41 competitive appearances for Leeds last term, contributing two goals and three assists.

The Cottagers are also believed to be weighing up a move for Manchester United’s Fred, who has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

The midfielder started just 12 Premier League games last season, and he is reportedly one of 13 first-team players that have been put up for sale.

Right decision: Leeds United must continue in same vein as 24-y/o ends five-year stay.

Leeds United are selling striker Tyler Roberts to Birmingham City this summer on a permanent deal, ending five-and-a-half years at the club for the 24-year-old.

Leeds have already moved to ensure that they are clearing out some of the players that have been deemed surplus to requirements this summer.

Striker Tyler Roberts looks to have ended his time at the club, with a move to Birmingham City imminent according to the YEP – once he returns from his holiday and training camp abroad.

It sees Roberts end his time at Leeds after joining back in January 2018, spending just over five years on the books at Elland Road

He’s not the only player that is expected to leave the club in likewise circumstances, and here we look at why it’s the right decision for Leeds to part ways…

No room for unneeded sentiment

A reset is needed at the club, and that includes making some tough decisions on players that don’t have a future here.

We’ve already seen confirmation that Adam Forshaw is going to be released (barring a turnaround), and Roberts leaving is another core figure from the Marcelo Bielsa days that will leave.

The club need to be ruthless to let these sorts of players go if the situation dictates it makes sense, and letting Roberts leave does.

Wage bill boost

According to Capology, Roberts earns a wage of around £3,500-per-week at Leeds, and while that’s not breaking the bank, it’s a decent amount to have written off.

Especially when the club are looking at seeing a fair few of these players leave, it’ll soon add up to Leeds tidying up their wage bill very nicely.

Doing that gives Leeds a great chance to add to their squad without having to worry about over-spending on new signings.
