Pierre-Michel Lasogga will not be staying at Leeds after his loan deal runs out this summer, according to a reliable journalist.
Phil Hay, who works for the Yorkshire Evening Post, made the claim on his personal Twitter account on Tuesday morning.
He said that Leeds “don’t want to keep him” and that even if they did it would probably be “impossible” because of his salary.
is going back, yes. Leeds don't want to keep him and even if they did, the finances of his deal at Hamburg are probably impossible.

Football Insider verdict:
Leeds fans won’t be surprised by this after a season that promised a little but delivered much, much less. Lasogga had a decent start to his career at Elland Road but it quickly became clear that he was playing to pick up a decent wage packet – one that Leeds will be glad to get off their books, whether parent club Hamburg were helping or not. 10 goals in 33 games across all competitions has contributed to the situation Leeds are in now. He didn’t start the last five games for the club, didn’t get on the pitch for three of them and was roundly criticised for his attitude when warming up as a sub. That’s not the sort of player that Leeds fans want at their club. Lasogga hasn’t been included in the squad to go to Myanmar, so he’s played his last game for the club, and we wouldn’t be surprised if his deal was ripped up before June 30. Leeds need a new striker next season but we know now that Lasogga won’t be providing any more goals at Elland Road.
