Pundit Exclusive: Leeds player tipped to move to Huddersfield by Friday
Leeds United midfielder Robbie Gotts should move to Huddersfield Town on loan this week and reunite with his former manager Carlos Corberan, according to Danny Mills.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the former England international said it is “vitally important” that the club choose the right destination for the 20-year-old.
This site revealed last week that Huddersfield, Swindon Town and Doncaster Rovers have held talks with the Yorkshire giants over signing the versatile midfielder on loan.
Gotts has three senior appearances under his belt for Leeds, his one start coming against Arsenal in the FA Cup last season.
He was an integral part of the Under-23 setup in the 2019/20 campaign, where he was managed by now Terriers boss Carlos Corberan.
Mills believes the John Smith’s Stadium would be the best place for the midfielder to develop given Marcelo Bielsa’s close connection with Corberan.

“A move to Huddersfield would be best,” he told Football Insider.
“It is vitally important that you choose the right club. When you talk to managers, the loan system is great when you have a certain degree of control over the player.
“If it is a coach that Bielsa has worked closely with, a coach that he knows, that he can pick the phone up to regularly it will be preferable.
“That is why clubs have always wanted B teams. It is always nice to send somebody to someone you know.”
