I'm really dubious that this lad will ever play for us tbh.

Needs recalling in Jan and sending out to League 1 for the rest of the season. Somewhere where he will play week in week out, like Roles at Cambridge!

Somewhere like Doncaster or Sunderland would be ideal, can live in York with his family still and not have that stress to weigh him down!

Boy has talent, just needs actual game time

Hope the last line is right. Either way it’s a fuck up, if he isn’t getting game time at Leeds he may as well be with us

Why League 1? He's good enough for Championship football.

Is he? We bought him off the back of a dozen or so sub appearances and he can’t buy a spot in the Leeds side...

I know Leeds have had difficulties with loans numbers etc, but he wasn’t good enough to be starting league games at the time we bought him and it would be hard to say he has improved in the last 6 months.

So maybe send him to a lower Champ club?? But to have his side beaten frequently and play in a poor side won’t do him any favours...

A high end L1 loan would be great as he is a guaranteed starter then, 90 mins, week in week out, which is what the boy needs

Leeds are top of the league that doesn't mean he's not good enough for any other team in the league, L1 won't test him.

I'd rather he started for a mid Champ side, they may not win as much but he needs to learn to lose as well as win.

Probably to go back out on loan. I don't see Mourinho giving him any minutes in the 1st team this season.
Which is fair. Can't see him play senior football for us this year if Sess will struggle with it. He needs regular playing time, preferably in a club where he will see a lot of the ball.

He can go help Scunny if he's up for it!

Hopefully he can go on loan to a club like Fulham or QPR, would like to see him get settled in London.
