Five Leeds United players' contracts expiring - Aidy White should go, Rudolph Austin should stay

Leeds United Crest

Aidy White, Lewis Walters, Rodolph Austin and Stuart Taylor all feature.

The season is coming to an end and with the international break clubs have plenty of opportunity at this moment in time to consider who will remain at the club and who will not.

That includes those whose contracts are coming to an end.

Five players at Leeds United become free agents in the summer, so who should stay and who should go?

Lewis Walters – STAY

The youngster’s future has yet to be resolved as he spent much of this season out of action with a serious knee injury.

However, he returned to action toward the end of last year and has since been promoted to the first-team.

If Neil Redfearn gets his way, Walters will stay and rightly so.

Stuart Taylor – STAY

This boils down to what is essentially a choice between the former Arsenal stopper or youngster Alex Cairns.

Both are out of contract this summer but with the young team being assembled at Elland Road an old head like Taylor’s could prove invaluable in the dressing room.

Alex Cairns – GO

That means hard luck to Cairns. He has his talents but a first-teamer at Leeds he is unlikely to become. At 21, he should look for more regular football lower down the ladder and allow one of the youngsters to step up to number three.

Aidan White – GO

If this decision boils down to anything but sentiment than the left-winger will be on his way.

A talent he is, no doubt, but he has not played since May 2014 and is unlikely to feature at all this campaign.

Time to let him go.

Rodolph Austin – STAY

Leeds could have let him go in January for cash, with Wigan Athletic loitering, but they pulled the plug.

That’s because despite his pitfalls the Jamaican is a vital member of the Leeds squad.

However, as much as Leeds might want to keep him, Austin may walk regardless.
