Leeds United will be undergoing numerous changes over the summer after almost securing their Premier League status this season.

Marcelo Bielsa has already dropped a big hint he will be staying at Elland Road, and big signings will surely follow El Loco to West Yorkshire.

With new signings come those who will be shown the exit door, and there could be a number of current first-team players considering their futures.

Leeds Live journalist Beren Cross has named a handful of first-team players that could be finishing their final campaign at Elland Road as we speak.

Ezgjan Alioski has been heavily linked with Galatasaray, and there could be three big names that follow him by cutting ties with the Whites.

“Other business rests on the fates of fringe players at Elland Road,” he wrote.

“The contract offer in front of Ezgjan Alioski continues to go unsigned, while Kiko Casilla, Pablo Hernandez and Helder Costa will surely take stock of their roles and playing time in the close season.”

In the case of Hernandez and Casilla, it seems highly likely that the Spanish duo will be packing their bags once the season ends in May.

The difference comes in the way their exits will be received.

Hernandez will leave as one of the biggest heroes the club has seen in the past decade, and our promotion to the Premier League is much down to him.

Casilla, on the other hand, should have left far sooner and will leave disgraced after his racism charge against Charlton in the Championship.

The case of Costa is far more confusing, and much could depend on how he finishes this season and if Bielsa wants another winger at the club.

Alioski, Hernandez and Casilla could have already decided their future, it is down to Costa where he wants to play his football; it’s time to prove his worth.
