If Leeds United sign Mark Travers from Bournemouth then they will surely have to kiss goodbye to Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

According to the Irish Sun, Leeds want to snap up Travers on loan, as they look to improve their goalkeeping options.

If Leeds do bring in Travers it would be a slap in the face of Peacock-Farrell, who has only recently plunged his future at Elland Road into doubt.

 

The Northern Irish international spoke to Sky Sports in the week, suggesting that he would only stay at Leeds next season if he was offered regular game time.

"The aim for me is to be number one at Leeds and play at Leeds but, if that is not the case, I may have to look elsewhere," he said. 

With Travers involved, Peacock-Farrell could face being demoted to third choice though.

Peacock-Farrell is already behind Kiko Casilla at Leeds, and Marcelo Bielsa certainly wouldn’t be bringing Travers in from Bournemouth to simply be a back-up option.

The signing would effectively rule out Peacock-Farrell’s chances of playing at Leeds for another season.

And if Travers does make the move to Elland Road then it may well be the final straw for Peacock-Farrell.
