In the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest headlines surrounding Elland Road.

Forshaw on VAR

Leeds star Adam Forshaw believes VAR should be scrapped as the Premier League continues to get to grips with the technology.

The midfielder told the Daily Mail: “I’d get rid of VAR. Most of the lads would. It gets you more infuriated because there’s something there that is meant to be black and white for you and it’s not.

“So you would rather still go off opinion. You are still getting decisions wrong when there is the technology. It’s embarrassing.”
