Update emerges on pre-planned transfer agreement between AFC Bournemouth and Leeds United ahead of 2022/23

AFC Bournemouth are “unlikely” to trigger the option they have to turn Leif Davis’ loan from Leeds United into a permanent agreement, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post. 

A deal was struck between Leeds and Bournemouth ahead of the 2021/22 season that saw Davis head to the South Coast on loan, with a view to Scott Parker’s side making that agreement permanent. 

However, Davis has made only 12 appearances in the Championship this season and has found himself behind Jordan Zemura in the pecking order.

A report from the Yorkshire Evening Post has now suggested that it is “unlikely” that the outcome of a permanent move to Bournemouth will come around now, following their promotion to the Premier League last week.

John O'Shea? (Loan)

The 22-year-old is already back at Leeds following the conclusion of the Championship season and will train with Jesse Marsch’s squad until their campaign finishes on May 22nd.

Marsch, who succeeded Marcelo Bielsa at Elland Road, will cast a watchful eye over Davis ahead of a decision on his future in the summer.

Despite coming back into the fold at Thorp Arch, Davis is not able to be considered for selection for Leeds’ Premier League fixtures.

The Verdict 

It’s not really a surprise to learn that Bournemouth won’t be triggering their option on Davis.

He’s not had the chance to make much impact in the Championship this season and heading back into the Premier League, you do feel like the Cherries’ money will be better spent elsewhere.

Furthermore, with Leeds also potentially heading back into the EFL, they might find a use for the left-back next season in the Championship.
