According to a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Tommaso Bianchi is set to leave Leeds United in the coming days.

Bianchi is reportedly set to join Ascoli on a permanent transfer, after he impressed on loan at the Italian club towards the back end of last campaign.

Bianchi’s exit from Elland Road looked inevitable this summer, after he failed to make much of an impression with the Whites.

Despite making a relatively productive start with Leeds back in 2014, he quickly fell out of favour after injury, and never reclaimed his place in the team back.

Bianchi is now expected to sign a three-year deal with Ascoli, after they agreed a deal with Leeds.

Bianchi did not play for Leeds throughout the entirety of last campaign, after being deemed surplus to requirements.

He was understood to be keen on a return to Italy, and he seems to have got his wish now.

Bianchi could be one of a number of departures from Leeds this summer, with the Yorkshire club in the process of having a clear out.
