The summer transfer window is open but Leeds United are yet to do any business as attention begins to turn towards the new season.

The Whites will return for pre-season at the end of June under Marcelo Bielsa, but when do they need to have all of their transfer business done by?

Premier League and Championship sides will have to have all their incomings completed by Thursday, August 8 - which is due to be the eve of the new top flight campaign.
