Lee Erwin has terminated his Leeds contract, according to a report.
Sky Sports Scotland claims on their official Twitter account that the 23-year-old has “negotiated his release” from Elland Road and already has offers on the table from clubs in England and north of the border in Scotland.

The former Motherwall forward is now understood to be considering his options after quitting the Yorkshire giants.
Erwin was signed by Leeds in 2015 and still had one year left on the three-year contract he signed following his release from Motherwell.
He made just 12 appearances across all competitions for the Whites during his two seasons in Yorkshire, but failed to find the net and was consequently shipped out on loan to Bury and Oldham.
The former Scotland Under-19 international struggled to find form with Olham until the final few weeks of last season, as he ended the campaign with 10 goals in 40 appearances across all contests.
News outlet TeamTalk has previously reported that Charlton and MK Dons were two of the teams keeping close tabs on the Leeds drop-out.
Football Insider Verdict
Erwin’s time at Leeds completely failed to get going so it’s understandable that he has walked out of the club. It’s a good move for all parties really because Leeds perhaps would have struggled to pick up a fee for a player they clearly deem as surplus to requirements. It also sees the club save money on his wages while it also makes it a lot easier for Erwin to sound out his next move. It seems that interest from League One is high, so the Scot should try to go back there for another season to finish off what he started with Oldham last time out.
