Spanish side Cultural Leonesa have confirmed that Leeds United have cancelled midfielder Ouasim Bouy’s loan deal with the club.
The second tier side announced via their official website that the 24-year-old had seen his time at the club come to an end early, having been shipped out on loan in what was initially a season-long deal.
The Moroccan central midfielder, who was a summer signing for Leeds on a free transfer from Italian giants Juventus, managed to make just four appearances for his loan side, as he found himself left as an unused substitute for much of Cultural’s league campaign.
He managed to total just 148 minutes of action across all competitions, with Leeds now in a situation to reassess their future plans for him after ripping up the deal with the Spanish side.
Football Insider verdict
Leeds have made the bold decision to cancel Bouy’s deal, but really, it should come as no surprise. He was with the Spanish club to gain experience of first team action but, for what ever reason, he leaves with just four appearances under his belt. Will he find more game time with the Whites? It is highly unlikely, but perhaps Thomas Christiansen will be looking to reevaluate the 24-year-old’s abilities before choosing what to do with him. However a run out in the upcoming FA Cup clash against Newport County seems unlikely, as that would mean he has played for two clubs this season, the maximum amount allowed by FIFA, and thus rule out another loan spell.
In other Leeds United news, the club have already signed their most important deal of the year.
