73-cap top flight star among three international goalkeepers on a free Leeds must target

Wayne Hennessey – 31 – Crystal Palace

2017/18 stats – Appearances: 19 – Conceded: 35 – Clean Sheets: 3

The top choice for Heckingbottom has got to be Crystal Palace and Wales stopper Hennessey, who would be a real statement of intent.

Getting him into the Championship after playing regular Premier League football would a tough ask but like with Krul, the club need to show their ambitions and target a return to the top flight, naming the 31-year-old as an integral part in their backbone.

With 73-caps for Wales under his belt, as well as 93 Championship appearances, he has the experience and the quality to be a key member of the first team, and would be a huge upgrade on what they already have at their disposal.

In other Leeds United news, David Prutton has delivered his prediction for the clash after a “huge blow” last weekend.
