Charlie Cresswell is already in France ahead of signing a deal with Toulouse to leave Leeds United permanently, according to Beren Cross.

Writing on his personal X account (30 June), the Leeds-Live journalist reports the central defender was a the Stadium de Toulouse on Saturday (29 June) ahead of sealing a £3.8million move to Ligue 1.

An announcement for the deal is expected “imminently”, with the 21-year-old having already undergone a medical ahead of his Elland Road exit.

The Leeds squad is going to take a battering this summer with several big exits expected after failing to earn promotion back to the Premier League.

Fans will have suspected that could open the door to some fringe players from the 2023/24 season earning an opportunity to make a place in the team their own, but that won’t be the case for Cresswell under Daniel Farke.

The young academy graduate was handed a new deal and the number five shirt last summer but found himself behind Joe Rodon, Pascal Struijk, Ethan Ampadu and Liam Cooper in his position as the season progressed.
