LUFC Strikers - Release, Sell or Keep?

LUFC Strikers - Release, Sell or Keep?

After another disappointing season Vital Leeds wants to know who you think should remain at Elland Road next season.

Brian McDermott will release his retained, released and transfer listed list in the near future and we would like to know, who you want to see released, who we should sell and who you would like to see remain at the club.

Today we assess the strikers who have made at least one first team appearance for the club.

El Hadji Diouf - Out of contract
Diouf seemed to spend more time out of the country than in it this season and I believe there was more going on behind closed doors than McDermott ever revealed.

He made just seven appearances for Leeds all season, his last coming Ipswich Town in January.

The 33-year-old is now out of contract at Leeds.

Noel Hunt - One year remaining
A disappointing first season for Hunt, who is still looking for his first goal for the club despite making 20 appearances.

He became a target for the boo-boys during the season as he struggled in the side.

Hunt still has one year remaining on his current deal.


Ross McCormack - Three years remaining
A fantastic season for McCormack, as he finished just one goal short of 30 for the season in all competitions.

He is already being linked with a host of clubs and it will test the resolve of the club this summer.

McCormack does still has three years remaining on his current deal.


Steve Morison - Two years remaining
Hard to believe that he still has two-years remaining on his deal with the club. He was shipped out on a season long loan to Millwall, where he hardly set the world alight.


Dominic Poleon - One year remaining
Poleon spent much of the season on the bench and 18 of his 23 appearances came from the bench.

He still has one year remaining on his current deal.


Matt Smith - One year remaining
Smith enjoyed a decent first season for Leeds netting 13 times. Imagine what he could get if we had someone out wide with a decent delivery.

He was seen as a work in progress signing when he joined last summer but with Hunt and Varney firing blanks; Smith was relied upon probably more than McDermott was hoping.

The 24-year-old has one year remaining on his current deal.


Luke Varney - Out of contract
Varney looks like he is on his way out of the club having finished the season on loan at Blackburn Rovers. He made just 11 appearances for Leeds and he refused to play in Leeds game with Ipswich in January as he was hoping for a move away from the club.

He struggled at Blackburn where he failed to score in 12 appearances and he spent much of his time there on the bench.

Varney is out of contract this summer.
