Four Leeds United players that will need to be replaced if the club wins promotion

Leeds United further cemented their spot in the Championship play-off positions on Saturday when they beat Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 at Elland Road, and they kept up their hopes of securing an automatic promotion spot too.

The Seagulls, who lie in second position, are now eight points ahead of Garry Monk’s side with eight matches of the season remaining, and with the south coast outfit losing three of their last five games, the race appears to be far from over.

The Whites are eight points ahead of seventh-placed Fulham too, and with both them and sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday losing at the weekend, it looks like only a barren run of form will deny the Yorkshire side a minimum top six finish.

If they did return to the top flight for the first time since 2004, Monk would know that he would make some changes to his squad in order for them to survive next season, with no room for sentiment.
