Leeds boss refuses to rule out of the departure of this player

Leeds United manager Thomas Christiansen has refused to comment on whether his club’s second choice goalkeeper Andy Lonergan will end up leaving the club this month. The 34-year-old Lonergan is reportedly a target of Championship strugglers Sunderland.

Lonergan joined Leeds for a second stint during the summer and did manage to dislodge current first-choice Felix Wiedwald for a short period of time.

However following some clumsy displays, the veteran was again demoted to second choice and he may be tempted by the opportunity of playing first team football under Chris Coleman.

Recent reports have suggested that Leeds could be set to sign Adam Bogdan from Liverpool and if that does happen, they could be open to parting ways with Lonergan.

When asked about Lonergan, Christiansen said: “Yes he will train with the team today and be in the squad for tomorrow [against Hull City].”

When asked about whether the keeper will stay, he added: “We will see, we will see.”
