Sheffield Wednesday's Almen Abdi
And with a new midfielder thought to be on the shortlist of Owls head coach Carlos Carvalhal, it is not inconceivable that the Swiss international could make a swift exit from Hillsborough this summer.
It remains to be seen whether Wednesday would sell to Leeds, who emerged as rivals for promotion last season, or whether the Whites could even afford the player, who is likely to be among the Owls' top earners.
But as far as [most of] those of a blue and white persuasion are concerned, Abdi's sale will not, nor should not happen - with Leeds among the last clubs with whom they would look to do business.

People really need to stop saying Abdi had a "difficult year" he was injured and when he wasn't he played and did well. #swfc— Tom Scott (@TomScott1) 6 July 2017
Probably our best on his day. Just had an awful time with injuries last season to only made a about 10 starts. Won't be going though— Ozzy (@O_SWFC) 6 July 2017
Had a poor season but was injured. Seems fit and ready now. Not a chance he will go sorry— jason webster (@JasonOwlse) 6 July 2017
I would gratefully swap Almen Abdi for Pontus the Leeds CH— Jim Hope 1867 (@SheffieldGrad) 6 July 2017
Where do you stand on Almen Abdi's future at Sheffield Wednesday? Could he leave for Leeds?
