Trusted Leeds journalist Phil Hay has confirmed that Patrick Bamford, Robin Koch and Diego Llorente are all OUT of this weekend’s clash between the Whites and West Ham.
The Athletic’s Leeds journo is seen as one of the top insiders on the Elland Road club and has confirmed that the club are set to be without the trio, along with Pascal Struijk, who is suspended after his red card against Liverpool.
Raphinha remains a doubt, with the Brazil international having emerged as a star turn this season.
Jack Harrison and Luke Ayling are also said to be doubtful, meaning that Leeds could be without as many as seven players ahead of this weekend’s clash.
It is a huge boost for the Hammers, who will be hoping to bounce back after last weekend’s loss to Manchester United.
Leeds, by comparison, haven’t won a game in the league this season yet and are currently 17th in the table.
