Leeds United made a number of changes in the summer, as manager Thomas Christiansen re-shuffled the Elland Road outfit.
One player who was offloaded on loan was right-back Lewie Coyle.
The 22-year-old was shipped out on loan to League One side Fleetwood Town, and the defender has been excelling for the Cod Army during his stint at the club.
Has the player got the potential to excel in the Leeds team in the years to come?
The writers here at FLW issue their verdicts…..
He has the chance to be a star.
Coyle looks a very solid defender already and his spell at Fleetwood Town this year looks to be doing him some serious good.
There is a problem for him at Leeds, though, with Luke Ayling a clear starter at right back and so Coyle will have to really excel in the coming years.
He wouldn’t have been given a new deal at Leeds if there wasn’t hope, though, and so he just needs to keep working hard.
What a big season he has ahead of him.
Coyle has been highly regarded for years now and has already featured for the Leeds first-team. However, this season-long spell at Fleetwood will allow him to really build a name for himself.
At 22-years old he has to be looking to become a regular at Elland Road soon if it’s going to happen, so a lot will depend on him. He has the potential and needs to kick on after a reasonable start so far under Uwe Rosler.
Coyle has flirted with Leeds’ first-team over the last two seasons, but failed to nail down a regular place in the starting XI.
The young full-back is currently on-loan with Fleetwood Town in League One, and he is showing that he has a huge future in the game.
Coyle will face competition from the likes of Luke Ayling on his Elland Road return next summer, but Leeds can’t ignore the 22-year-old’s talent, he is the future.
