Club confirms its retained list ahead of the new campaign...
The club has submitted its retained list to the Football League and nine out of contract players will be departing Elland Road this summer, while new deals have been offered to eight young professionals and three scholars.
Kalvin Phillips and Lewis Walters are among those who have been offered extended stays at the club, but Rodolph Austin, Aidan White and Stuart Taylor head up the list of those who have been told their contracts will not be renewed this summer and are free to leave United.
Alongside Phillips and Walters, two of United’s rapidly progressing homegrown talents, new contracts have been offered to fellow Thorp Arch prospects Lewie Coyle, Tyler Denton, Eric Grimes, Luke Parkin, Alex Purver and Jake Skelton.
Additionally, second-year scholars Tom Lyman, Frank Mulhern and Bailey Peacock-Farrell have been offered their first professional deals.
However, Michael Tonge, Daniel Atkinson, Luke Booker, Alex Cairns, Afolabi Coker and Zac Thompson have not been offered fresh terms and will be joining Austin, White and S. Taylor in exiting the club.
Young scholars Isaac Assenso, Liam Bennett, Adam Berry, Piteu Crouz, Munya Mbanje and Ian Molloy have also been released and will not be offered professional deals.
The club would like to thank all of the players moving on for their contributions here and wish them well for the future.
