  Leeds United supporters react to starting XI for Cagliari friendly Leeds United have named a strong starting XI to face CagliariThere are a number of new faces on the Leeds bench, which is in-part due to the fact the Whites played a behind closed doors game yesterday. That friendly means some of Leeds' regular first team players have been given the night off. Additionally, Liam Cooper, Cody Drameh, Luis Sinisterra and Adam Forshaw all miss out due to injury.

The Whites have been linked with a number of left-backs this summer. Leif Davis left the club to join Ipswich, Firpo is currently injured and Pascal Struijk started at left-back in the opening day win against Wolves. There is a lack of depth in that position, particularly as Firpo only played 24 league games last season, missing periods of the campaign through injury.

Leeds reportedly believe they can sign Wagner for £2.5 million. Brentford, Fulham and West Ham have all previously been linked with the player.

With the left-back linked with a move to Leeds, here is everything you need to know about Kai Wagner.
