Good Morning. It's Thursday 4th July, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...

An agreement with Kamara already in the pipeline

News is beginning to filtering through suggesting Glen Kamara has agreed personal terms with Ligue One outfit Rennes! The 28 year old had a steady first season with the Whites, completing 2968 minutes of league game time with an average 'Whoscored' rating of 6.68. He notched up three assists, but failed to find the back of the net.

Leeds lack of goals from midfield last season is a worry. The only league goal from a midfielder 23/24) came in the Play-Off Semi finals, when Gruev's intelligently taken free-kick caught out Angus Gunn in the 4-0 victory over Norwich City. This was also their first goal direct from free-kick since the last day of the 20/21 season. According to

In midfield, while negotiations with AS Roma continue for Le Fée, the Finn Glen Kamara (Leeds) is one of the priority leads. An agreement with the player is already in the pipeline.

Seagulls to try again for Rutter

Brighton are set to test Leeds Utd's resolve with a second bid for French U21 International Georginio Rutter! The talented playmaker is 18 months into his five and a half year contract at Elland Road, and supposedly loving life in West Yorkshire. His mischievous antics and fun loving persona have made him a favourite both on and off the field, even likening him to Ezgjan Alioski. With the excitement surrounding his performances, fans have been comparing their support for him to the thrill of using a casinoin bonus code during a high-stakes game. The term of his contract indicates Leeds are looking at long term success, but money talks! At what price would you let Rutter leave the club?

Cooper set to depart after rejecting 12 month deal

Liam Cooper lets set to leave Leeds Utd this Summer, after rejecting a new 12 month deal, bringing his decade long tenure to an end. The Scottish International centre-back, who turns 33 next month, wanted two more years at Elland Road but the club refused, and now it looks inevitable that the former skipper will be looking for a new club this Summer, probably in the Championship.

Cooper has a young family, so is not expected to venture too far, so don't discount a move to Sheffield Utd/Wednesday, Preston, Boro, Sunderland, Blackburn or even a return to Hull City. In-truth Daniel Farke just doesn't rate Cooper, hence he was restricted to 714 minutes of game time last season. At-least it means his £25,000 a week wages can be put to good use!

With Cooper departing, will Farke give Charlie Cresswell a second chance to show his worth? The 21 year old centre-back recently rejected personal terms with Ligue One outfit Toulouse, after passing his medical!

I agree with others that the talk about Farke speaking with Rutter and that having an effect on his performances afterwards is clutching at straws. I would say his injury and simply a slight loss of form were more to do with it than anything else. He is still a young guy learning the game. Like a lot of young players they go through periods when they can seem to do no wrong and then just as easily they can have poor games, its all part and parcel of them growing up and learning. Hopefully this season he will come back, injury free and have learned more about what he needs to improve on. If he does that then we will be able to sit back and enjoy a really good footballer, whos enjoying himself on the pitch. His poor games, and he will have them, wont be down to Farke, as much as some would maybe like them to be.

He has to be let off of whatever leash he's been on.
I am bemused by the suggestions that Rutter was somehow restricted last season by DF in terms of displaying his flair.

His frequent loss of possession and loose passes was not coached into him. As Weasel commented upon and which many of us observed during last season the opposition soon became wise by restricting his space and time on the ball by getting tight and physical.

He has had to adapt his style accordingly. He should be a better player this season. There will still be flair but I expect a more considered approach when he is in possession.

Well considering that the QPR game was on October 4th, our 10th match of the season, it would appear that given how much flair I remember from Rutter, which I had thought was over the course of the season, he must have been doing none stop tricks in those opening 10 matches if he didn't show any flair after that.

FIddle dee dee I wonder if him showing less flair after match 10 was actually due to the opposition deciding to tighten up on him whereas in the first few matches the opposition players probably didn't know much about him or what he was going to do, after all we didn't and he was our player.

But hey nonny nonny let me pick up my fiddlesticks and beat Farke over the head with them. Voldemort was he who shall not be named whereas it appears Farke is he who must be blamed.

Are you saying he cut out the flair stuff?
Didn’t seem like anything changed for me
Still tried the ridiculous game in game out
