Leeds United news and transfers LIVE: Reaction to Real Betis defeat, midfield search, Terry Cooper tributes

Welcome to our live Leeds United blog for Sunday, August 1.

Leeds got more pre-season minutes under their belt on Saturday in a 3-2 friendly defeat to LaLiga side Real Betis at Loughborough University.

Patrick Bamford and Mateusz Klich got the goals for Marcelo Bielsa’s men but there was concern as both Diego Llorente and Pascal Struijk left the pitch injured.

Next up is a Wednesday evening trip to Amsterdam to face Ajax before they wrap up their pre-season slate with a clash against Villarreal next Saturday.

Attention can now turn again to transfers, with a central midfielder still on Leeds’ summer shopping list after the signing of Kristoffer Klaesson was completed on Saturday.

We will be here all day to bring you all of the latest developments from Elland Road and beyond as they happen.
