breaking news: Leeds United have finally found a replacement of Archie Gray from…..

Leeds United may be willing to sell Archie Gray this summer and replace him with Oliver Skipp from Tottenham Hotspur, according to The Athletic.

The outlet has reported (13 June) that the Whites have PSR concerns that they have to consider moving forward into the transfer window.

This could see Daniel Farke forced to sell the likes of Georginio Rutter and Crysencio Summerville, as Leeds also could look to cash in on Gray.

If a midfielder is needed at Elland Road, Skipp could be “a player of interest” with a departure from Tottenham on the cards, on top of a push for Joe Rodon.

Leeds fans will be keen not to lose Gray this summer after such a successful breakout season for his boyhood club in the Championship.

His versatility played a great role in the Whites’ squad as they accumulated 90 points and were desperately unlucky not to be promoted automatically.

After losing to Southampton in the Play-Off final at Wembley, financial problems were realised as another year in the second tier was confirmed.

Sales will be needed this summer if Farke wants to make any summer additions while the hierarchy will need to balance the books for PSR reasons.

The likes of Summerville and Rutter have high valuations and could bring in high fees while Gray is a homegrown talent and at 18 has been truly impressive

This could tempt big sides into signing him, leaving Leeds in a position where they might be forced into a sale.

Bringing Skipp in as a replacement may prove to be a good piece of business but it will still be frustrating to lose Gray after just one full campaign.
