League One club prepare loan bid for Leeds 22-year-old - report

Fleetwood Town are preparing a move to take Leeds United defender Lewie Coyle on loan, according to a report.

The Yorkshire Evening Post claims that the League One club want to re-sign the 22-year-old on a temporary basis after he impressed out on loan with them in the 2017/18 campaign.

It is understood that new Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa is yet to decide the future of the right-back and is weighing up his options.

Football Insider verdict:

Coyle was outstanding for Fleetwood in the last term and he should be kept at Elland Road int he 2018/19 season. There is a suggestion that Bielsa will play a three-man defence with wing-backs at Leeds and that system would suit Coyle perfectly. The youngster is a product of the Whites academy and is good enough to become a future regular in the first team. Luke Ayling and Gaetano Berardi offer options on the right flank, but Coyle is an upcoming talent that deserves some game time and would really flourish under the new manager if given the chance. It is no surprise that Fleetwood want him back after his stellar campaign where he managed six assists during the season, but Leeds fans are always keen to see their young talents given a chance at senior level. Coyle is definitely a much better player following his experience on loan and a path to the first team has to be drawn.

In other Leeds transfer news, they have joined the hunt to sign a 6ft 2in goalkeeper from a Premier League giant.
