Sources: Bouy's bizarre four-year Leeds spell finally comes to an end as exodus intensifies
Ouasim Bouy’s bizarre four-year spell at Leeds United will finally come to an end next month.
The midfielder, 27, has been training alone after being completely frozen out of the first-team picture but has continued to pick up his United wages.
A Leeds source has told Football Insider that the club’s burden of paying Bouy will finally come to an end next month.
It will see him head out of Elland Road without playing a single match for the Yorkshire giants since signing on a four-year contract in the summer of 2017.
United announced on Friday that Pablo Hernandez and Gaetano Berardi will both leave at the end of the season.
The hugely popular pair are departing Elland Road as heroes who will forever be remembered fondly for their roles in reigniting a sleeping giant.

Bouy will leave as a forgettable curiosity who will be a reminder of the mixed recruitment of Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta’s first transfer window at the club.
At a time when Leeds were struggling to get out of the Championship and did not have the resources for mega-money signings, a punt was taken on the former Holland Under-19 international.
It was soon apparent that he was not regarded by coaches as of the required standard and he was sent on loan to Cultural Leonesa in Spain and PEC Zwolle in Holland.
Permanent moves could not be agreed even though Buoy played regularly for Zwolle and he has spent the last two years frozen out at his parent club.
Bouy has infrequently updated his Instagram page, including with clips and images of him training.
The latest came on 5th May and he will now be able to find a new team as a free agent.
