Phil Hay: Leeds attacker frustrated with 49ers and wants to leave

After a positive start to his Leeds United managerial career, Daniel Farke has been hit by one blow after another.

The German has seen some players depart, though not unexpectedly, Liam Cooper added to the injury list which is apparently now in double figures and Max Aarons go back on his word to sign for the club.

There’s very much an element of ‘all hands to the pump’ at the moment, and on Thursday morning, it was confirmed that the Yorkshire-based club had lost another of their prized stars, with Chelsea set to sign Tyler Adams.

If all of that weren’t enough to keep Farke busy, Willy Gnonto’s situation is becoming a bit of a thorn in his side too.

Against Shrewsbury Town on Wednesday night, Gnonto didn’t play but wasn’t injured and, as Phil Hay of The Athletic (subscription required) noted, a stand off has seemingly developed between the youngster and the clubs new board, 49ers Enterprises, as they are refusing to sanction a sale.

With a few weeks left of the transfer window it’s entirely possible that the player is moved on, because Farke simply cannot have a situation where Gnonto isn’t injured but doesn’t play. That won’t benefit any of the parties.

Equally, the club shouldn’t make it easy for the player to move and must stand their ground on a best price if, in the end, they acknowledge that there’s little point in keeping an unhappy player.
