Leeds United defender Lewis Coyle has claimed he still has a future at the club following his loan move to Fleetwood Town this season.
Speaking to the Fleetwood Weekly News, the right back has insisted that his parent club are keeping a close eye on his progress, and is hoping to still have a future at Elland Road.
“They have been in contact a lot. “It’s nice to know that they are still interested and keen to keep track on my progress.” Coyle said.
The versatile defender has slotted in nicely for the League One club after only making 10 appearances last season for the Whites, and he will be hoping his form for the Cod Army can impress new Leeds gaffer Thomas Christiansen enough to earn a slot back in the squad.
Coyle came through the academy at Leeds and looked set for a bright future after a run of games impressed the coaching staff in previous seasons. However, a summer of change at the club has seen manager Christiansen bring in a whole host of new players to push Coyle down the pecking order.
“That was always the aim when I came to the club; to play games and, most of all, enjoy my football.” added Coyle.
Coyle is a quality young player and is still only 21-years-old. This bodes well for his future, and Fleetwood is a good footballing club to be involved with.
If he can maintain his good form on the coast, then Leeds might well look to bring him back and give him a chance in the first team.
