Zaliukas set to leave Leeds

Sky Sports understands Marius Zaliukas is set to leave Leeds United after being left out of their pre-season training camp to Italy.

The Lithuanian international defender has one year left on his current deal, but now he is set leave the club by mutual consent.

Leeds fended off interest from a number of clubs to land the former Hearts defender in October last year, on a short-term deal.

Zaliukas impressed under then manager Brian McDermott and was handed a new deal taking him to the summer of 2015, but he is now set to leave after making 15 appearances for the club last season.
