Leeds United will be looking forward to the summer so they can assess this campaign and decide how they are going to shake things up for the new one.
Certainly, they need to have a real rethink about how they approach a number of aspects to do with a football club and signing players will surely be high on the agenda.
For many fans, the club have not done brilliantly in getting in the right recruits of late and it would certainly appear the case that Victor Orta has some work to do to get many of the supporters onside.
In the meantime, though, fans of the club have seen Phil Hay deliver an update about the contract status of many of the players with him posting this on Twitter:
Further to the issue of altering Leeds United's squad this summer, a look here at which players are under contract and for how long:https://t.co/kNQJnSgOtF

There’s been a mixed response to some of the lines that have come out of this on Twitter, too, so let’s take a look at what has been said:
Who on god's green earth gave Laurens De Bock a 4 1/2 year contract??? Did they even watch him play first? Should be on £0 a week and only get paid if he manages a 5/10 or better. Would save us a fortune #LUFC

He’s had one bad game….

Lol everyone kicking off about De Bock cos he's had a shaky start. Cooper been at the club for years and is League 1 at best, but has another 3 year on his contract.

Although – those on contracts beyond 2020 are either 1) good (Forshaw, PJ, Samu) 2) young, and therefore might get better (Roberts, Vieira, Ekuban)
Might not be as bad as "they're all staying for two years minimum" might appear…

How about say cull underperforming 5 players on £15,000 per week with a year left on their contract that would be 15,000 * 52 * 5 = £3,900,000. Tough call. It worked with Sir John Byng……though he was shot.

any word on when Shaughnessy will be back?

At least it's going to cost clubs a bit for Jansson and saiz
