Updated Predicted Leeds United XI for 2016/17: Featuring five new signings, no Cook

Swansea manager Garry Monk

An updated look at how Leeds United could start next season.

Is this how Leeds United could line up in 2016/17?

The club have been active in the transfer market this summer, snapping up six players already including the marquee signing of Kemar Roofe.

The attacker is likely to take a spot out wide, and will form an exciting attacking trio with Chris Wood and fellow new boy Marcus Antonsson.

With Stuart Dallas delivering the crosses from out on the left, this could be one of the most exciting Whites teams in years.

Lewis Cook's departure will create a gap in midfield, but it is one the club appear to have addressed in the short-term, with a season long loan for Matt Grimes from Swansea City.

He is is pole position at present to partner Toumani Diagouraga in midfield, while Luke Murphy remains an option, as could Liam Bridcutt, should the club decide to bring him back after a successful loan spell.

Rob Green seems set to start in goal after his arrival, and manager Garry Monk's preference for experience hints that Sol Bamba could get the nod to partner new addition Kyle Bartley at the back, who is also on loan.

The only new signing not to feature is Hadi Sacko, with the winger potentially an impact player off the bench, along with Jordan Botaka, and Alex Mowatt.
