I can't keep him. I think he's a really good player, but if Dallas and Alioski are picked ahead of him, then he's not important. And then there's Davis.

Thank you very much, sadly time to move on. I hope we sign a left back. Dallas and Ali can go to the bench.

Been quite a disappointment since he arrived, can only remember him having 1 or 2 decent games and has been plagued by injury. So “thank you very much, sadly time to move on” for me. 4/10

Same for me I was excited at him signing but kind of fell flat 4/10

Played okay when he has played but not set the world alight. His stats at Wolves suggested he would chip in with a few goals and assists but that hasn't happened here and is probably behind Dallas and Alioski, certainly attacking wise. With Leif Davis seemingly highly rated there seems little point in keeping him if we get a decent offer.

Rating 6/10 has done okay when he played but not enough to suggest he should replace Dallas.

A disappointment.

Wolves fans were spot on, tidy on the ball but lacks pace and defensively suspect.

Wouldn't cut it in the Prem as Wolves knew.
4/10

Move on.

Agree with this. Had high hopes when we signed him, unfortunately never really got going. Time to move on. He is well down the pecking order and that's before we hopefully sign a recognised LWB.

Impossible to know what to think regarding BD, there's a footballer there and pace ain't everything. Good striker of a dead ball, better defender than Dallas imo, I think he costs 5 mill plus to replace.

I'd personally like his skill set on our bench, fair chance Davis gets loaned out and Alio ain't a LB at the next level so he stays for me as depth assuming fitness and assuming we can't make a decent profit on his sale. I think he might be surprisingly good if forced into a starting role for us..

Tough to score, you'd have to have a max of 5/10 for the body of work called a season due to the injuries so I'll go 4/10 but extrapolate that to a 7 if he played a full season. I do think he was MB's first choice LB at the start of the season.
Rod Stewart and Ron Wood look like somebody ordered the same rock star in two different colours.

Tough one. Tidy, pretty solid at Championship level, and does have a good delivery. However has struggled with injuries, isn’t as attacking as our other LBs (while similar in defensive ability to Dallas), and hasn’t really looked like scoring when he’s played. Pace is the big thing he lacks. It’s a cruel old world, so for me it’s time for Douglas to move on. 4/10.

What we witnessed of BD's game at Wolves, we haven't seen anything like the same quality at Leeds. If he can avoid injuries Douglas could be a decent full-back for a championship club.

Unfortunately it's time to move on

Move on, wolves didn’t see him as premiership material and didn’t play much for us.

I thought I had done this one...... but hey ho

I see a player in there, but he just does not seem to make it work here, so I think he was only a squad player in the Championship, so he must have found his level.

So long, auf wiedersehn, goodbye

5/10 on his few appearances, and his last 2 have bumped that up......

As the squad currently stands, he is squad player for me

If we sign a left back then he should be loaned or sold.

Never rated him. Has shown nothing to speak of since swapping the old gold of Wolves for the white of `Leeds.

Would defo listen to offers and get rid.

Squad player, at best. He simply hasn't shown that he can stand up to the rigors of playing in Bielsa's system.

He'll make a decent living somewhere, but not for us. By all accounts a good guy; I wish him well.
