Have Casper Sloth and Ross Killock played their last match in a Leeds shirt?

Leeds United 2

The two Leeds United players have not featured for the under-21s recently.

Leeds United’s under-21s played their last match of the season this week as they drew with their Barnsley counterparts 3-3, and the absence of two players in particular could mean they have already played their last match in the club shirt.

Much has been written about the possible future of Casper Sloth – the Danish midfielder who has managed just 15 senior starts for the Whites since arriving in 2014 – but defender Ross Killock could also be on his way this summer after slipping down the pecking order for Leeds’ second string.

Killock has had to contend with injuries this season while Sloth has been a regular for the under-21s, but recent team-sheets even at that level suggest neither player will be at the club much longer.

Killock’s Leeds contract expires this summer and the 21-year-old looks unlikely to get an extension.

As for Sloth, he has a year left on his current deal but first-team chances seem highly unlikely under current manager Steve Evans.

Both players are at an age when they will want to play regular senior football and with the next generation now coming through at under-21 level, two of the older guard in that sense are surely heading for the Leeds exit.
