Adam Pope: Leeds players Hosanna and Stevens set to seal summer exits
Leeds United defender Bryce Hosannah and winger Jordan Stevens are set to join Wrexham and Barrow respectively, reports BBC journalist Adam Pope.
The duo both spent last season away from Elland Road on loan, and they are no longer in the plans going forward.
Leeds are now trying to get deals done for Hosannah, 22, and Stevens, 21, before Tuesday’s summer transfer deadline.
Pope posted on his personal Twitter account on Monday evening: “Hearing Leeds United defender Bryce Hosannah set to sign for National League Wrexham, and winger Jordan Stevens for League 2 Barrow.

Not good enough
Hosannah spent 2020-21 at League Two side Bradford City, featuring in 11 games before returning to Leeds in April 2021 for rehabilitation after surgery to an injury sustained in December 2020.
The defender is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Whites, and it appears that will not be happening.
Hosannah joined the Yorkshire side in the summer of 2017 after his release from the Crystal Palace academy.
He linked up initially with the under-23s, making the Leeds bench for the first time against Huddersfield Town in December 2019.
The versatile Stevens spent the first half of last term with League One’s Swindon Town, before joining Hosannah at Bradford during the latter half of the campaign.
He joined the Elland Road side from League Two’s Forest Green Rovers in February 2018, going on to make six appearances over the next two campaigns.
Playing for Leeds is not for everybody, and head coach Marcelo Bielsa clearly does not have plans for either of them in his first-team.
