The first of five pre-season fixtures which Leeds will feature in takes place next Thursday as the Whites prepare to face Championship side Blackpool.

Hosted at York City’s LNER Community Stadium where the Under-21 squad are expected to play in 2022/23, Leeds will get their pre-season schedule underway but are unlikely to have a full squad to pick from.

Leeds’ internationals are due back for pre-season testing on Monday, July 4 meaning a three-day turnaround before facing the Seasiders may come too soon for the likes of Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen who recently joined the club.

Marc Roca may be in contention to start after he sealed a £10 million transfer from Bayern Munich and began pre-season with the bulk of Jesse Marsch’s squad on Monday, June 27.

The likes of Illan Meslier, Daniel James and Mateusz Klich will all likely feature for the first time during the team’s tour of Australia in mid-July.

19:00 BST Thursday, July 7: Leeds United vs Blackpool – LNER Community Stadium, York
