The eight Leeds United players out of contract in 2017

All of the following could leave Elland Road for nothing next summer.

Swansea manager Garry MonkMonk has added six new faces so far

The focus of new Leeds United boss Garry Monk has been fixed mainly on incomings this summer, however, a number of dwindling contracts could force him to consider potential outgoings too.

The following players could be free agents in a year's time, so what are their situations?

Sol Bamba

Leeds are thought to be in the hunt for a new centre-back and as such are considering releasing Bamba from his contract, according to the Sun. He's likely to stay until a replacement is found at least.

Jordan Botaka

A change of manager will have no doubt encouraged the Congo winger, however, the subsequent signing of Hadi Sacko and apparent pursuit of NEC's Anthony Limbombe has left his future looking bleak.

Liam Cooper

While Leeds will not want to lose their captain - especially on top of Giuseppe Bellusci and, potentially, Bamba - they may be forced to if a new deal cannot be agreed. West Brom and Burnley are both said to be keen (Talksport).

Souleymane Doukara

The Senegal striker is certainly expendable following the recent captures of Kemar Roofe and Marcus Antonsson and could be moved on - if, of course, offer comes in.

Robert Green

QPR's Robert Green

Green's age, combined with a lack of football over the past six months, has likely prevented a longer-deal being offered. However, an extension can be expected if the former England number 1 impresses.

Alex Mowatt

The youngster will be hoping to recapture his form of old under Monk, having struggled to live up to expectation over the past few campaigns. No talks have yet been reported, and Leeds face the prospect of being left in the lurch next summer. That said, as long as Mowatt is offered a new deal on equal or greater terms, the Whites are guaranteed compensation if he then moves to another English club.

Charlie Taylor

The player Leeds will undoubtedly want to keep the most. Cellino stressed this month that Taylor will not be sold, a la Lewis Cook (the Mirror), and as with Mowatt the club can safeguard themselves by offering the left-back a contract which is at least as good as his current one - even if he doesn't accept it. This is particularly reassuring giving the amount of clubs said to be keen.

Ross Turnbull

Ross Turnbull

The 31-year-old is Leeds' fourth choice keeper as things stand and is likely to move on ASAP - if Marco Silvestri doesn't beat him to it.
