Three players Leeds United should be looking to sell this summer

We take a look at three players Leeds United should sell when the transfer window re-opens.

With Leeds United destined to finish in mid-table this season, thoughts are already turning towards the future.

The Whites are desperate to make it back into the Premier League and Neil Redfearn has told the Yorkshire Evening Post today how important the club's business in the upcoming transfer window will be if they are to achieve that aim.

Redfearn wants to bring in proven Championship quality to improve his squad, but Leeds will need to sell some of their current team if they are to make room for new additions.

In this piece we take a look at three players who could leave Leeds in the summer.

Steve Morison

Morison's career at Leeds has been revived since Redfearn took charge, but the Whites should put him up for sale this summer.

Although the target-man centre-forward has been used fairly regularly, his lack of goals remains too big an issue to overlook.

Morison has not been able to find the back of the net in 23 appearances this season and Leeds need to find a more potent front-man if they are to move forward. 

Souleymane Doukara

Doukara only arrived at Elland Road last summer, but he has not shown enough to suggest that he has the ability to be a regular in a promotion-chasing side.

The 23-year-old made an impressive start to his Leeds career, but his lack of technical ability is a concern and he has found chances hard to come by of late.

Doukara has not started a match in 2015 and should be one of the first out of the exit door if the club can find a buyer in the coming months. 

Billy Sharp

Although Sharp's quality at Championship level cannot be denied, he just doesn't appear to be the right fit at Leeds.

His attitude and desire is exemplary, but he hasn't found any sort of form in his first campaign at Elland Road and the Whites may be better off looking elsewhere next season.

Sharp is a clinical finisher, but he doesn't seem to be the best fit for Leeds' current system and, despite receiving a number of opportunities, he hasn't shown the best of what he has to offer.

The 29-year-old has scored just five times in 32 matches and Leeds should make sure they get rid while there is still sure to be interest in the striker.
