Casper Sloth has confirmed he is looking for a way out of Leeds United.

Casper Sloth has admitted he is working towards leaving Leeds United.

Speaking in his homeland to Danish website Bold.dk, the midfielder explained he has instructed his agent to find a new club.

This is despite his admiration for new head coach Uwe Rosler, but he says getting regular playing time is of utmost importance.

Sloth said: "I am fit and have played a part as a starter, but I was not in the squad the other day, and it is obviously far from optimal for either me or the club.

"The training is also good, and the new managers style of play suits me. The only thing I pretty much missing is playing time

"Leeds would probably like to have a part of the transfer fee they paid for me back and it will be hard to get when I have not played more than I have.

"Additionally, I have two years left on my contract, so I think a loan is the most realistic. But for me it is not so important, I just want to play again."

Sloth struggled to hold down a place under three different managers last season, and has not stated his case well enough so far under Rosler to merit a place amid strong competition.

He was given a chance on the wing in the friendly with Eintracht Frankfurt but failed to impress.

When he signed for Leeds he had a bright reputation and was even a Danish international, playing in a friendly against England at Wembley. Now he is out of the picture for his country and the chance to reset and start again is surely best for him, while for Leeds he has offered so little it would not seem like a great loss.
