Brenden Aaronson’s Premier League move depends on Leeds’ fate

Jesse Marsch wants to bring the United States international to Leeds next season, but they will have to avoid relegation first.

The moment of truth has come for Jesse March and Leeds United, who have one game left of the 2022/23 Premier League campaign to avoid relegation. The American manager was appointed in mid-season, replacing Marcelo Bielsa, with the sole objective to remain in England’s top flight next year.

The Whites managed to rescue a valuable point over the weekend against Brighton and Hove Albion when Pascal Struijk scored the equalizer in stoppage time. That gave Leeds some breathing room and currently they are 17th, although relegation rivals Everton and Burnley each have a game in hand.

Aaronson could join Marsch next season

Leeds need a win in west London against Brentford on Sunday to have a chance of avoiding relegation. Marsch’s side will also have to hope the teams around them drop points on the final day of the Premier League season.

Leeds were promoted last year and if they retain their Premier League status Marsch will be handed funds to bring in new players during the summer transfer window. Brenden Aaronson is a priority target and the Salzburg midfielder could be reunited with Marsch in the summer if Leeds remain in England’s top flight for the 2022/23 season.
