Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa will be fine-tuning his preparation for the coming season with pre-season a matter of weeks away, with the Argentine looking to strengthen his squad with the aim of automatic promotion next season.
One player though who looks to be heading for a second loan-spell away from Elland Road is 21-year-old Dutch winger Jay-Rot Grot, who is subject to interest from both Hearts and Vitesse Arnhem, according to the YEP.
Grot has been at Elland Road since 2017 making 20 first team appearances before heading out on loan to VVV-Venlo back in July 2018 on a season-long loan.
So what would be the best move for Grot?
“I think he’d be suited with a move to Hearts.
“Grot has impressed me out on loan in recent months and I think he’d be a useful addition to their side ahead of next season.
“There’s absolutely no chance he’ll be a Leeds player by the start of the season, as he’s not good enough to start for Leeds.
“I think another loan move is definitely the best option for Jay-Roy Grot next season.
“He’s not good enough to start for Leeds next season and another spell out on loan somewhere would be the best thing for his development and allow him to gain more experience.
“He’s already got a decent amount of experience in the Dutch league, so perhaps he will feel that Vitesse would be a good option for him.
“I personally feel that if he wants to make it at Leeds, he needs to experience regular football in England, so a loan move to another club in the EFL would be good for him.”
“It’s not easy to compare either side.
“Both offer different challenges for the player. One thing is for sure; a Leeds exit is the right move.
“The SPFL is an odd league, there are huge games and games not unlike the English third division.
“I’d be tempted to say Vitesse. They’re a bigger side than Hearts and perhaps offer a more consistent challenge.”
