Souleymane Doukara looks set to depart the club after three years, the French forward is attracting strong interest from a host of clubs from England and Turkey, and will be left out of tonight’s squad with the view of him joining someone very soon.

Doukara has been in the background since early pre-season and it seems he is set to depart the club the same as Bridcutt, leaving in search of regular game time. Doukara hasn’t always been a favourite with Leeds fans but has come in and out of the fold throughout his Leeds career. He started with two goals in the League Cup and went on to score a few that season, most memorably the wonderful team move against Blackpool led by Adryan. He fell out of favour towards the end of the season and was part of the Charlton 6, the less said about that the better.

However Doukara worked his way back into the side under Steve Evans at times and when he seemed set to be forced out last summer he stayed and ended up playing a key part in the season, mainly being used off the left and filling in up front when Chris Wood was out injured. He did a decent job when he did play and will probably be remembered for the best goal (I have ever witnessed) at Elland Road, the volley against Nottingham Forest, a goals that you could watch over and over again. It looks as if he won’t be around much longer, as Leeds cut numbers ahead of the new season.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
