With one league victory under their belts and a position of 15th going into the first international break of the year, the Whites are doing a fantastic job of getting the team back on track under Daniel Farke.

Knowing that players won’t be departing from this point on, but that many would be leaving on international service with their country, he has the opportunity to assess his group.

Who is leaving Leeds for an overseas assignment?
Ethan Ampadu (Wales), Ilia Gruev (Bulgaria), and Glen Kamara (Finland), three midfielders who were recently signed by Leeds, are all departing for duty, while Joe Rodon (Wales) and Willy Gnonto (Italy) are the other senior internationals called up.

Others leaving this week include Darko Gyabi, Sonny Perkins, Charlie Cresswell (England u21), Jeremiah Mullen (Scotland u21), Charlie Allen (Northern Ireland u21), Charlie Crew (Wales u21), Dani van den Heuvel (Netherlands u21), Leo Hjelde (Norway u21), and Diogo Monteiro (Portugal u19).

Crysencio Summerville (Netherlands u21) and Archie Gray (England u19) won’t be playing for their countries despite having already participated in prior matches due to this list of international call-ups.
Despite the fact that neither player is injured, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post, they will be kept at Thorp Arch in order to monitor their health and give priority to rest times after being intensively utilized at the beginning of the season under Farke.

It’s fortunate that the club made sure they stayed put because both require extremely careful management in the coming weeks.


This week, Gray in especially needs to take it easy since, if we don’t start rotating, he might get run into the ground.

Thankfully, we signed players in the spots of Summerville and Gray last week, so we’re not completely under pressure to watch them play 90 minutes every single week.
