Leeds United goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald could leave Elland Road as soon as this week, as covered by German newspaper Bild.
Wiedwald joined Leeds from Werder Bremen in last summer’s transfer window, with the German signing a three-year contract with the Championship club.
The 28-year-old started the 2017-18 season as the number one, but lost his place in the side following a string of errors.
It is understood that new Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa wants Wiedwald to leave Elland Road as soon as possible as he plans for the new campaign.

And it is being reported that the stopper’s contract could be terminated as soon as this week, which would allow him to join Eintracht Frankfurt ahead of the 2018-19 season.
The Leeds fans have been reacting to the speculation on social media, and it would be fair to say that they are looking forward to the struggling goalkeeper leaving the club.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the supporters, who criticised Wiedwald throughout last season, can be seen below:
