According to Sky Sports, Leeds United goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown is set to leave the club at the end of the season.
Speculation over the 33-year old’s exit arose as a tweet made on his account brought up a frenzy of rumours.
Last training session today at #lufc Great club. Look forward to my next adventure now. Thanks to all that helped me through injury.

Ashdown had been brought into the squad to provide competition and cover for Paddy Kenny. However, the former Portsmouth goalkeeper has been out since the tail end of last season. with a toe injury which required surgery.
Last season he was used regularly in cup competitions with his last appearance coming against Manchester City in the FA Cup. Since joining in 2012, Ashdown made 8 appearances for the club.
Rumour has it that he is venturing into business rather than playing football again. Ashdown set up a new website business last year, Trusted Pro Supplements, which helps athletes avoid taking banned or harmful substances after recognising a gap in the sports supplements industry. Although despite this a club would find a player of his ability and experience as a vital addition.
