Laurens De Bock arrived at Leeds United from Club Brugge in January 2018 and things changed for him after Marcelo Bielsa arrived at Elland Road later that year.
The left-back was not included in the Argentine’s plans and the Whites sent the Belgian out on loan to KV Oostende, Sunderland and ADO Den Haag in the past two seasons.
His last loan spell was at the Dutch side and the defender’s temporary spell with them was completed on June 30th. De Bock’s future at Elland Road remains uncertain.
Het Laatste Nieuws brings the latest development on the 27-year-old’s situation and their title reads ‘De Bock almost round with Zulte Waregem’.
Within the report, it’s explained the Whites owned player met with the Belgian club’s chiefs on Wednesday. HLN further adds discussions between the two parties are ‘going in the right direction’.
De Bock’s current deal with the Championship leaders will run down in 2022.
The newspaper doesn’t specify if Zulte Waregem are looking to take the defender on a loan deal or on a permanent transfer. In addition to this, there’s no mention of Leeds’ stance on the fullback.
