Preparations are underway at Elland Road, with the squad being reshaped as Daniel Farke looks to get his ideas across.

Here is the latest Leeds United news round-up.

Leeds United have been linked with two Championship goalkeepers. Speaking on the The Square Ball’s Leeds United podcast, Phil Hay of The Athletic said Leeds “like” Preston North End’s Freddie Woodman and Norwich City’s Angus Gunn.
He said: “They looked at James Trafford but Burnley are paying big money for him, so that’s taken him out the equation. There are others they like, Freddie Woodman, Angus Gunn as well.”
Three Spanish clubs are reportedly interested in signing Leeds United defender Junior Firpo. A mass exodus has taken place at Elland Road following the club’s relegation to the Championship and according to OK Fichajes, Firpo could join the list of players who have moved on.
