He was immediately loaned out to Leeds’ feeder club Cultural Leonesa in the Spanish second tier but that deal was ripped up midway through the season and he returned to Thorp Arch, where he was frozen out of the matchday squad.
Bouy spent last season out on loan at Dutch Eredivisie club PEC Zwolle, making 18 starts among 23 appearances from all competitions.
Leeds had been hopeful that the sustained run of form would enable the midfielder to find a new club in the summer but that did not prove to be the case.
