The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wed 20 June)

Good Morning Everyone

Auf Wiedersehen Felix!

Weidwald has signed a three year contract to be back up keeper at Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt!

The German made 28 appearances for the Whites, conceding.....lots of goals.

There was a fee, but it was undisclosed...





Ghana's football federation have stated that Leeds United intend to part ways with striker Caleb Ekuban this Summer.

The 24 year old made 20 apearances, finding the net once.





Meanwhile Sacko has posted on social media that he is looking forward to pre season training next week at Thorp Arch.

Don't know why, but I thought he had gone...





According to Spanish daily El Mundo Deportivo (obviously a reliable source), Bielsa is keeping close tabs on Jon Aurtenetxe. The 26 yo full back is a free agent after his contract expired at Dundee

Aurtenetxe played under Bielsa at Athletic Bilbao.

The 26 yo will be used to the physicality of the Championship, and could prove a useful squad player.

He could well be Ian Snodin's love child

G'day EB

Ekuban won't be missed either.

I also thought Sacko had left.

Morning EB,

Good luck to Felix, but he wasn't cut out for this league.

I bet Sacko will be gone once Bielsa gets settled in, he has speed and feck all else.

From Atletico Bilbao to Dundee, hardly a stellar career path!!

Evenin Harry, I was expecting great things from both players.

I recall before we signed Sacko, his parent club had slapped on a 70m price tag on him.

Perhaps they were thinking Zimbabwean dollars. :)

Morning 1304, Felix gone, sure Lonegan will be next.

Sacko looks like he should be a good player

Good morning Matt

At last we seem to be making the right decisions :)

As for Sacko, Is one decent cameo appearance at Burnley last season worth the £2m we paid for him :roll:

At least Bielsa will know what Aurtentxe is capable of as oppose to our previous full-back signing De Crock

Morning Leon, if Bielsa can get through to Sacko to look up, and deliver a decent cross who knows.....
