Robbie Gotts exects to leave Leeds United before Tuesday deadline

Robbie Gotts is set to leave Leeds United before the transfer window closes at 11pm on Tuesday, according to LeedsLive.

The news outlet reports that Gotts, 21, could join either League Two clubs Oldham or Barrow or Scottish Premiership club Motherwell.

The versatile midfielder, who spent last season on loan at Lincoln and Salford, is in the final year of his contract at Elland Road and has been deemed as surplus to requirements.

All the best, Robbie

It is a real shame that it hasn’t worked out at Elland Road for Gotts because Marcelo Bielsa really took a liking to the academy product in the Championship.

Bielsa named Gotts in his matchday squad on 33 occasions in the second-tier while the midfielder, who can play on the wing or at right-back, was also handed three senior appearances by the Leeds United manager.

However, Gotts struggled last season while on loan at Lincoln in League One.

He played just seven times in the league for the Imps before that loan spell was terminated early and he was then sent to League Two’s Salford.

Gotts had a better time at Salford, playing 22 times in the league and scoring three goals in the process.

Clearly, League Two is Gotts’ level right now or a lesser team in League One but at the end of the day, he’s still young and can come good in the future.

Unfortunately, he’s just not in the picture at Leeds and selling him permanently is the best option for all parties.
