According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds is now prepared to consider permanent offers for three players in Helder Costa, Kiko Casilla, and even Ian Poveda this summer, with all three players excluded from the clubs' Australian tour this summer.
Leeds sent youngsters to Australia, including Leo Hjelde, Archie Gray, and Crysencio Summerville, but decided to leave Poveda, 22, at home. The winger might find himself somewhat choppy after his leg break at Blackburn.
Even with Raphinha's departure, Leeds has a number of options out wide. Luis Sinisterra has come in, Jack Harrison remains, Crysencio Summerville will step up, and Dan James has starred in pre-season.
Rodrigo and Brenden Aaronson might be able to do a job, especially with Jesse Marsch preferring inverted wingers. Poveda is no longer a possibility, and Leeds is prepared to sell him initially on loan, but with a view to a permanent deal.
Helder Costa will have to sign with Leeds permanently this summer in order to keep his career alive. Kiko Casilla is also on the transfer list at Elland Road.
Leeds is being attentive to offers for Costa, Casilla, and Poveda.
They are simply not needed since they were all missing from Australia. Even if Newcastle buys Jack Harrison, the need for Poveda and Costa remains small. That is, given that the Whites will surely reinvest the fee they receive from the Toon.
Costa and Casilla have no hope at the club whatever the future. The MLS is interested in Poveda this summer, and a move to America might tempt the ex-City man. Pep Guardiola once said Leeds was the perfect match for Poveda.
