He has made three senior appearances, the last of which came in the EFL Cup defeat to Hull City in September of last year.
It now appears that will be Harrogate-born Gotts’ final match in a United jersey.
United do not regard the versatile midfielder, who can also play at right-back, as capable of forcing his way into Marcelo Bielsa’s team amid increasingly strong competition.
That will be a bitter blow for Gotts, who has been on Leeds’ books since the age of seven.
He graduated through the Under-18s and Under-23s to be handed his first-team debut by Bielsa.
The long-term deal in February 2019 suggested the Argentie and the Leeds staff regarded him as a first teamer of the future.
