However, the Whites do have a number of experienced players in their ranks that are in and around the age of 30.
One of those players is Luke Ayling, who is the fourth-oldest player at the Yorkshire club.
The full-back is set to enter the final year of his current contract this summer, meaning that it could be worth Jesse Marsch thinking about looking for a potential replacement for the veteran.
With that in mind, the upcoming summer transfer window could give the Whites the chance to sign one player in particular that could fit that bill.
Back in the previous January transfer window, Leeds were linked with a move for Blackburn Rovers defender Ryan Nyambe.
The 24-year-old’s current contract at the Lancashire club is set to expire this summer, which could pave the way for the Whites to make a bargain swoop and secure him on a free transfer this time around.
In terms of what he could offer Marsch’s side, only four other Blackburn players have racked up more tackles than Nyambe, who has also made 29 interceptions and totalled a points-per-game average of 1.68.
Having also been deployed in numerous positions for his side this season – including centre-back and right midfield – his versatility could make him an ideal heir for Ayling, who has also played in different defensive areas of the pitch for Leeds.
Labelled as a “man mountain” by Tony Mowbray, Nyambe could be a solid squad addition for Marsch as he aims to strengthen his side ahead of next season.
Moving forward, if the Blackburn talent isn’t going to put pen to paper on a new deal with the club before the summer, then Andrea Radrizzani should definitely be in the mix to pounce on a potential free transfer for the player.
And, if Ayling then doesn’t end up signing a new deal at Elland Road, this could pave the way for Nyambe to take his place in the team.
