Leeds United set to let midfielder leave in January

FLW understands that Leeds United are to let midfielder Rudy Austin leave in the January transfer window.
The 29-year-old central midfielder has found playing time hard to get under manager Neil Redfearn, and according to FLW sources, the Yorkshire club are set to let the Jamaican leave in January.
As reported on FLW earlier this month, Championship strugglers Brighton and Hove Albion are interested in the combative midfielder, and are considering making a January bid for the Leeds player.
However, it is uncertain who will be in charge of the Seagulls come the start of the January transfer window, with current boss Sami Hyypia on the brink of getting the sack.
Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn has introduced an influx of youth into his starting eleven, subsequently meaning Austin has been sidelined more often than not.
The Jamaican international has made 15 appearances for the Whites this season, scoring once, but has recently fallen out of favour with most of his appearances coming from the substitute bench.
The Elland Road outfit currently lie in 19th position in the Sky Bet Championship table, having accrued 23 points from 21 league games.
