Robbie Gotts expected to leave Leeds this month

Leeds United are expected to be busy as we enter the final month of the transfer window.

The Whites are not only looking for new faces to bring to Elland Road, but there will be those who are shown the exit door.

Beren Cross has shared an update on Monday afternoon, with those not featuring in pre-season expected to leave.

The Leeds Live journalist picked out Robbie Gotts, insisting that a permanent exit could even be on the cards.

“One of the higher-profile under-23s to have been left out up to now,” he said.

“The 21-year-old is expected to depart Elland Road in this transfer window either on loan or permanently.”

Real shame.

Marcelo Bielsa greatly admires the young midfielder, and even-handed him his debut in the FA Cup against Arsenal a couple of years ago.

El Loco once even admitted that he even felt guilty at not giving Gotts the minutes he deserves in the first team.

Things appear to have changed though, and after a couple of loan spells at Lincoln and Salford, a permanent exit looks best for all parties.

Leeds have moved in a different direction, and with the signing of Lewis Bate from Chelsea, have much more quality in midfield.

Gotts can count himself unfortunate at Elland Road, but that is how it goes sometimes, and with one year left on his deal, this looks best.

We would of course wish the young midfielder the best for the future, which right now looks to be away from West Yorkshire.
