A number of top Premier League players could be available on free transfer this summer with many top-flight stars out of contract at the end of the season.
Yorkshire’s sole Premier League representative at Leeds United has three senior players in the final years of their contracts. Luke Ayling is the final year of a four-year deal he signed in 2019.
The 31-year-old first joined Los Blancos in 2016 and has made over 200 appearances for the club. Adam Forsshaw is currently in the final year of a one-year contract he signed in January.
His deal gave Leeds the option to extend Forshaw’s contract for a further 12 months, meaning he could still stay at Elland Road until the summer of 2024.
The latest player out of contract next year at West Yorkshire is goalkeeper Joel Robles who signed a one-year contract this summer as he joined on a free transfer from the La Liga side, Real Betis.
With Leeds having three players currently out of contract – we’ve looked elsewhere in the Premier League to see which players might be considering their future options in the coming months.
