Leeds United fan frustration around the expected sale of Jack Clarke is based around the view of his potential, rather than his overall contribution last season.
Clarke made just four starts for Leeds in the Championship, and 20 appearances from the bench. He scored twice and provided two assists.
It was a valuable, but ultimately replaceable contribution.
This is good for Leeds despite the big fee they look likely to get from Clarke's sale, via The Sun.
That's because despite being able to sign potential replacements, Leeds may already have done so.
The shrewd signing of Polish wonderkid Mateusz Bogusz could pay quick dividends for Leeds this season.
Bogusz arrived with first team experience at Ruch Chorzow and made an immediate impression for Leeds' under-23 team.
Strong performances in pre-season can elevate him to the first team, and he should be confident he can exceed Clarke's tally of four league starts this past campaign.
Bogusz made the bench at the end of the season, showing he has already caught Marcelo Bielsa's attention.
New signings will come this summer, but Leeds can relax over Clarke as they already have his exit covered.
