Leeds United have decided that they will listen to offers for left-back Barry Douglas in the summer, according to Football Insider.

Douglas, 30, joined the Whites in a £3million deal from Wolves in July 2018 but has only managed 39 appearances in all competitions since then and has started just four Championship matches this season.

The one-time Scotland international has struggled with injury issues in his time at Elland Road and that has led to him dropping down the pecking order at left-back, behind Stuart Dallas and Ezgjan Alioski.

Football Insider reports that Douglas’ lack of game-time means that it is likely he will try to find a new club in the summer transfer window and as he enters the final year of his contract at Elland Road in the summer, Leeds are prepared to offload him whether they win promotion or not.

Even though he has not exactly matched the form he showed in his one season at Wolves, Douglas has been a good servant for the Whites.

It is a shame that injuries have led to him getting fewer opportunities under Marcelo Bielsa but Dallas has been the stand-out left-back this season and Alioski has also made some game-changing contributions in that role.

Douglas could still play a role in Leeds’ bid to win promotion but due to the fact he enters the last year of his contract in the summer and his injury issues, selling him would probably be the wise thing to do.
