Leeds United defender open to a permanent move to League One club in January

Lewie Coyle is open to making his loan to Fleetwood Town permanent in January according to a local journalist.

Tom Sandells is a digital sports reporter covering Fleetwood Town for the Blackpool Gazette and he’s revealed the news this morning via a tweet in which he also claims the right-back knows Leeds are looking to sell him.

Coyle’s contract with Leeds expires in the summer, and it is no surprise he would be open to making his stay permanent on the Fylde coast.

Since emerging through the Leeds academy, he’s spent the last three seasons on loan at Highbury. Indeed, if he plays in tomorrow local derby against Blackpool, he will become only the second loan player to make one hundred league appearances for one club in the Football League and the first to achieve the feat consecutively.

The twenty-four-year-old was speaking in the press conference ahead of tomorrow’s match at Bloomfield Road that pits seventh against eighth in the League One table.

Coyle has made twenty-one appearances across all competitions for the Cod Army this campaign and played a crucial role in keeping the club in playoff contention.

He made twenty-three outings for Leeds after being given his debut in 2015 by Steve Evans. However, his future in West Yorkshire appears in serious doubt after failing to establish himself in Marcelo Bielsa’s plans.

Sandells is printing the full interview in the Blackpool Gazette tomorrow.

Our View

This potential deal looks a no brainer.

Coyle has no future at Leeds, and most Fleetwood Town fans love him.

We expect this one to happen in January unless another Championship outfit takes a look and wants to take a punt on the talented full-back.
