Report casts doubt over 34-year-old’s Leeds United future



It is unclear if Andy Lonergan will be part of Leeds United’s plans going forward, with the Whites looking set for a summer shake-up.  

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, it is uncertain whether Lonergan has a future at Elland Road, after the goalkeeper’s inconsistent 2017/18 campaign.

Lonergan was second choice to Felix Wiedwald and Bailey Peacock-Farrell at different points of the season, only managing to make nine appearances across all competitions.

Wiedwald looks likely to move on this summer, with Lonergan’s future at Elland Road looking bleak, with Leeds tempted to move for David Stockdale, who according to the YEP, can leave Birmingham City this summer.

Both Wiedwald and Lonergan found themselves behind Peacock-Farrell during the final third of the Sky Bet Championship season, as the 21-year-old impressed, helping Leeds stumble to a 13th place finish under Paul Heckingbottom.

After a difficult year for Leeds’ goalkeepers, it is expected that the Whites look to bring a new goalkeeper to Elland Road to compete with Peacock-Farrell ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

The Verdict

Lonergan’s return to Elland Road has been a disappointing one, with the 34-year-old far from convincing when he was handed a chance.

Some key changes need to be made at Elland Road this summer, with the goalkeeping department certainly an area that needs to be looked at.

Moving Wiedwald and Lonergan on is the logical move, particularly if Leeds bring in another body to compete with the impressive Peacock-Farrell.
