Sunderland midfielder Liam Bridcutt’s summer move to Leeds could be off as the West Yorkshire outfit prepare to change manager again.
Current Leeds boss Steve Evans may be replaced at Elland Road, with Bristol Rovers manager Darrell Clarke being lined up, which could mean that
Bridcutt’s proposed move is off.
The 27-year-old impressed on loan in the Championship when he joined Leeds last November and the Scotland international has been told he can make the move permanent this summer, with boss Sam Allardyce viewing him as surplus to requirements.
Bridcutt made 28 appearances for Leeds while on loan and is believed to be keen on returning there if a deal can be sorted out.
It’s unclear if Clarke will pursue the former Brighton man should he be appointed although his future lies away from the Stadium of Light in any case, even though he still has one year left on his contract.
Several other Championship clubs could move for Bridcutt, who is valued in the £1.5million bracket, if he fails to seal a return to Leeds.
