Truths: Davis in Australia

Davis, who Scott Parker described as ‘brilliant’ during his loan spell with Bournemouth last season, was selected in a 26-man squad to travel to Australia for the Whites’ pre-season tour after Junior’s final game Fipo. wound.

The 22-year-old featured in both friendlies against Brisbane Roar and Aston Villa, with Marsch starting at left-back against his fellow Premier League side.

Davis is in the final 12 months of his contract with Elland Road, and it looks like his future is still undecided with the new season fast approaching.

The Last: Hay’s Claim to Davis

Writing in a story for The Athletic on Saturday, Hay addressed Davis’ situation.

The Reliable Reporter says there is an offer on the League One table from Ipswich Town for the full-back, with Marsch being ‘two minds on whether to keep him close’.

The verdict: new left-back needed

Davis has only made 14 senior appearances for Leeds, the same number as for the Under-23s, so it could be a risk ahead of the new campaign with him as the only available left-back in the first team.

Firpo and Stuart Dallas are both sidelined for the foreseeable future, and while Pascal Struijk, Leo Hjelde and Jack Harrison – who has also been linked with an Elland Road exit – could fill in if needed, he could be wise to sign a new left-back and allow Davis to move on.

Only time will tell what Leeds and Marsch decide to do, but it seems their immediate focus is on a new striker following Raphinha’s move to Barcelona.
