Just who is in the Leeds first team squad for pre-season?

Leeds United's squad have arrived in Ireland to begin their pre-season training camp, which will involve two matches.

New Assistant boss Pep Clotet posted an image of some of the squad upon arrival, with several tired faces among the group.

One player who was smiling, is the player at the back of the picture holding the while Leeds United bag, whose identity has prompted plenty of discussion on social media.

Immediate theory was that it was teenage talent Ronaldo Vieira, who made his first team debut at the end of last season.

Some fans suggested it could be a potential new signing, with one name mentioned being French winger Hadi Sacko, who looks remarkably similar.

Yet his Instagram page from just three days ago at Sporting Lisbon read 'back to work' and saw him pictured with a teammate.

This does not mean it is logistically impossible for him to have joined up with Leeds in the mean time, but it would be a rather sudden development, and Yorkshire Evening Post reported Phil Hay has suggested it is indeed him.

Leeds have already secured two new signings this summer, bringing in Marcus Antonsson and Kyle Bartley.
