Number of players missing from travelling party

Number of players missing from travelling party

A number of senior players were missing as a 20-man Leeds United squad set off for their two week training camp in Italy.

Striker Ross McCormack is the highest profile player missing from the list of players that haven`t made the trip fuelling speculation that the Scottish international is set to leave the club after reportedly handed in a transfer request last week.

Paddy Kenny, Marius Zaliukas, Rodolph Austin, Cameron Stewart, Scott Wootton and Alex Mowatt are also missing from the party that have arrived in Santa Cristina.

Paddy Kenny is believed to be training at Thorp Arch after the goalkeeper returned for pre-season training last week out of shape.

Lithuanian international Zaliukas could be set to leave the club despite having a year remaining on his current deal having only arrived at Elland Road in November. Zaliukas was impressive in his first month with the club after a successful trial and he was rewarded with an eighteen-month deal at Christmas but his form dipped alarmingly in the second half of the season.

Rodolph Austin is still hoping to join up with the squad after administrative problems with his paperwork allowing him to travel to Italy.

Cameron Stewart hasn`t travelled despite the winger supposed to be completing a permanent deal with the club tomorrow. Leeds have been trying to find a way out of the deal to sign Stewart who had an unsuccessful spell at Elland Road in the second half of last season and it is believed that the winger now as no intention of joining the club and he has declared himself a free agent.

Scott Wootton and Alex Mowatt have remained at Thorp Arch as they recover from injuries picked up during the summer.

Steve Morison, who spent the whole of last season on loan at Millwall, is amongst the party that have travelled as well as youngster Lewis Cook, Jack Shelton, Chris Dawson and Lewis Walters.
