Report: Rosler makes Ajose, Morison and Sharp available for Elland Road exits

Leeds have reportedly put three strikers up for sale.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds have made Nicky Ajose, Billy Sharp and Steve Morison available for transfer this summer.

The Whites boss has been shaping his squad this summer, adding the likes of Ross Turnbull, Sol Bamba and Tom Adeyemi - as well as two new forwards.

Lee Erwin and Chris Wood have arrived from Motherwell and Leicester City respectively, giving Rosler more options in the final third - much needed ahead of the new season.

However, those additions mean some players must leave, and the Yorkshire Evening Post believe that Rosler has put three players up for sale.

Strikers Ajose, Morison and Sharp have allegedly all been made available for sale, with Millwall and Sheffield United interested in re-signing Morison and Sharp, according to the report.

Ajose and Sharp only joined last summer from Peterborough and Southampton respectively, whilst Morison has always struggled for goals ever since his move from Norwich in 2013 - so their possible departures shouldn't be too much of a surprise.

Are any worthy of staying?

Ajose failed to make any sort of impact last season, and was even loaned out to League One side Crewe Alexandra for first team football, suggesting he has little future at Elland Road.

Sharp was in and out of the Leeds side last season, scoring just five goals in 28 appearances - and with Erwin, Wood, Mirco Antenucci and Souleymane Doukara also in the reckoning, the 29-year-old may need to leave to gain first team football.

However, Morison's possible departure is a surprise, having not only played frequently last season, but also featured under new manager Rosler in pre-season. As a hard working target man, Morison does have a part to play at Leeds - but seemingly not under Rosler.
