Leeds United fans are set for a fairly undramatic transfer deadline day but there could still be some outgoings.
Athletic journalist Phil Hay has said that there is interest in young centre-back Oliver Casey from MK Dons and others.
He also said there were “offers afoot” for Jay-Roy Grot and Alex Machuca.
Striker Jay-Roy Grot, 22, was on loan at Vitesse Arnhem last season but suffered an injury and has been recuperating since.
He’s out of contract in the summer and we could see him moving for free or a very nominal fee.
A fairly quiet deadline day ahead of Leeds. Only outgoing moves expected. Interest in Olly Casey still (including MK Dons). Also offers afoot for Jay-Roy Grot and Rafa Mujica.

Casey a surprise
Casey moving out on loan surprises us a bit as he’s been a regular on the bench this season.
As we predicted with this news, Charlie Cresswell was on the bench for the game against Leicester and looks set for an extended run there if Casey does leave.
Marcelo Bielsa obviously believes that Casey’s future is best served now with regular first-team football.
Rafa Mujica is sweating on a deadline day move that’s been promised for the past week now, but Las Palmas seem to be struggling to get the finances in order.
One player who is going to stay is Gjanni Alioski, who had been linked with a summer move to Galatasaray.
Hay claims that Leeds are still hopeful that he will sign a new deal.
One player that Leeds fans hoped to hear the last of in this window is Ouasim Bouy but he looks set to stay and squeeze the last bit of cash from a contract that’s proved to be a real waste.
He hasn’t been near Thorp Arch for a long time now but Leeds haven’t been able to settle his contract or move him on.
