Leeds United could be open to selling Leif Davis to Ipswich Town

Leeds United could be open to selling Leif Davis in the summer, according to Football League World.

The website reports on 18 July that the Whites could be willing to sell the young defender to Ipswich Town, provided they manage to land another left-back this summer.

The report doesn’t mention whether it will be a loan move or a permanent one, but it suggests the Whites will be “very open to selling him” to the Tractor Boys.

Make sense

The 22-year-old has impressed Leeds boss Jesse Marsch already, and he has been included in the pre-season tour of Australia.

At the moment, both Stuart Dallas and Junior Firpo are out injured, and the pair are likely to miss the start of the season.

It leaves Marsch short of options in the left-back areas.

At the moment, only Davis remains the only option, and that is the reason why Ipswich are finding it hard to sign the young talent.

However, if Leeds manage to sign one left-back this summer, the chances are high that they will allow the young talent to leave Elland Road, either on loan or permanently.

Leeds have money burning a hole in their pocket following the departures of Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha, and they can easily add a new left-back to their ranks.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Davis. It seems, he has been making incredible progress, and the club at best could allow him to move out on loan, provided they have adequate options ready before the start of the brand new season.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites are on the verge of winning the race to sign this player amid a £96,000-a-week development.
