Indeed, the YEP suggested at around 12pm that Leeds head coach Steve Evans wants three fit centre-backs and is therefore intent on keeping the Italian at Elland Road alongside Sol Bamba and Liam Cooper.
Bellusci has recently upped his game but has been the source of frustration for Leeds fans in the past.
However, it appears Evans is keen on keeping the defender with the Whites despite any interest that might come in today from Italy.
It appears supporters would be in favour of that one at Loftus Road. Emmanuel-Thomas just hasn't performed to date at QPR and the west London side need results.
There will no doubt be more to come on Leeds and QPR on HITC Sport throughout the day.
