The 49ers had hoped that the next two months would be dedicated to getting ready for a Premier League comeback,

where big investment would realize the team’s dreams.

They are, nevertheless, preparing for a second Championship campaign in which a rebuild at both ends of the field is

essential and sales are unavoidable.

Leeds could be looking at a new number one goalkeeper

Illan Meslier’s confidence has significantly returned this season after he was consistently scoring bad goals in the

22–23 Premier League campaign.

But when it counted in the promotion run-in, the Frenchman in the Leeds goal failed to provide

any answers to the issues posed to him.

Daniel Farke will now have to prepare for another reorganization at Elland Road,

which may include bringing in a new goalkeeper.

From the outside looking in, Karl Darlow appears to be a capable substitute for Leeds, eager to take advantage of the

opportunity to join the team.

He supposedly earns £30,000 a week after permanently joining from Newcastle United in 2023—a substantial salary

that few Championship teams would even entertain for a player in their roster.

not to mention a goalie who hasn’t really played much.

When Meslier was sent out at Preston, Darlow made three starts for Leeds and one substitute appearance; hence, in

retrospect, Leeds’ wage commitment to Darlow seems a strange one.

Farke’s hesitation to give Darlow a chance was understandable considering his inconsistent play in possession,

especially in the EFL Cup against lower league opponents.

Leeds will undoubtedly need a new first-team “keeper” who is up to par overall, something Darlow hasn’t really

proven in his few opportunities, if they decide to sell Meslier in order to assist balance the budget.
