Luke Ayling wanted

Sheffield United are considering a summer move for Leeds United right-back Luke Ayling, according to Alan Nixon. Ayling's contract at Elland Road is due to expire at the end of the season and he is expected to be released without the offer of a new deal.

The former Arsenal man should be available on a free then, and, if the report is to be believed, the Blades have identified him as a potential target as they prepare for their inevitable return to the second tier. The Bramall Lane club are seven points adrift at the foot of the Premier League table and with just five games left to play, they could be relegated in the coming days.

Ayling has spent the second half of the campaign on loan at Middlesbrough, where he has made 17 appearances, starting every available game since joining in January.

Harrison future latest

Jack Harrison is another who could be set to leave Elland Road permanently this summer. Football Insider have that report, with the publication claiming the winger, who has been on loan at Everton this season, has little to no future in West Yorkshire.

Daniel Farke isn't keen on reintegrating those who have been out on loan this season upon their return and the report claims the club will be looking to find a new permanent home for Harrison in the summer, whether they go up or not.

Harrison has made 31 appearances for Everton this season, racking up four goals and three assists.
