Photos: Byram all smiles in Leeds training, Antenucci looks more serious

The linked-away Leeds duo were in training at Thorp Arch on Thursday afternoon.

'Silly season,' as many managers call it, is well underway. But, at Leeds United, there's nothing silly about it. The January transfer window is bringing the very real possibility of several players leaving Elland Road - and Steve Evans, Massimo Cellino & co will have to work hard to ensure they are replaced.

According to Sky Sports, Evans has admitted Sam Byram is in demand and wanted by several Premier League clubs.

That didn't spoil the 22-year-old's spirits in training, though, as he sported a smile - and an interesting hat - in the rain at Thorp Arch on Thursday afternoon.

Another linked-away Leeds star looked a little more serious, though. Indeed, Mirco Antenucci wore a very focused look as he warmed up during practice.

Reports in Italy have recently suggested the 31-year-old is considering his Leeds future and Piceno Time have reported that a Serie B chairman is in constant contact with Cellino over the Italian striker.

Will both players end up leaving Leeds before the end of the transfer window?

If fans could choose one to stay and one to go, which one would it be?
