Swansea midfielder Matt Grimes has revealed that he is unsure what he wants to do at the end of his Leeds loan deal.
The 21-year-old star has struggled at Elland Road this season, but has recently shown signs of returning to the form that saw him star in England Under-21’s Toulon tournament triumph.
Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds, Grimes revealed that he is not ready to make a decision on his Leeds future – or any kind of future for that matter.
“A difficult start for me. I wasn’t right at the start of the season; I wasn’t on it,” Grimes said. “I feel like I’m getting back to my best every day.
“Obviously my future is a big question. I’ve still got my year here at Leeds and two years left on my contract at Swansea.
“It’s about taking things step-by-step, game-by-game and seeing how things progress and then making a decision when it comes to it.”
Former Blackburn loanee Grimes was instrumental in Leeds EFL Cup penalty shootout triumph against Norwich in the week.
His inch-perfect through ball set speed merchant Hadi Sacko free on the right flank, before the Frenchman supplied a low cross for top scorer Chris Wood to equalise in the 109th minute.
The defence-splitting pass almost single handedly gave Leeds a chance of progressing to the quarter finals of the cup, with Garry Monk’s side now set to travel to Anfield next month to face Liverpool.
In the meantime, Grimes is expected to continue his rapid return to form against Burton on Saturday, with Monk looking to edge closer to the Championship elite.
Three points will see the Yorkshire giants move level on points with sixth placed Bristol City, as they set their sights on the playoffs.
In other Leeds transfer news, the Championship side are in talks to sign this £3.6million-rated defender.
