Zaliukas joins Leeds exodus

Marius Zaliukas has become the latest player to leave Leeds after his contract was terminated by mutual consent.

The Lithuania international, 30, joined the Whites last October on a short-term deal before signing an 18-month contract in January.

Much has changed at Elland Road since then under the leadership of Massimo Cellino and the two parties have now decided to go their separate ways.

Centre-back Zaliukas joins a host of players in leaving Leeds this summer, a list which includes Michael Brown, El-Hadji Diouf and Luke Varney.

The club have been unable to bring anyone in due to a transfer embargo, which they hoped would be lifted on Tuesday.
