Leeds United are ready to let Robbie Gotts leave the club on a permanent basis, with Oldham Athletic among the clubs keen.
The 21-year-old has been highly-rated at Elland Road for a few years but he has struggled to establish himself as a regular, which is understandable given how the Whites have performed since Marcelo Bielsa arrived.
Therefore, Gotts had to leave to get regular minutes, and he spent last season at Lincoln City and then Salford.
Now though, Leeds appear ready to sell, with Football Insider stating that they are open to a permanent move for the youngster, whilst the update states Motherwell, Oldham and Barrow have all shown an interest.
Whilst no fee is mentioned, it’s unlikely to be a significant amount for the Harrogate-born player, who can fill in at right-back or in several midfield roles.
Should Gotts secure a switch to Barrow or Oldham, they would be getting someone who did well in the fourth tier last season, with Gotts scoring three goals and registering two assists after joining in January.
Did these 25 players make more or less than 100 Leeds United appearances?
This seems like a sensible move for all parties. Whilst Gotts has been on the fringes of the first-team in the past, he’s way down the pecking order now because of the quality Leeds have.
So, given his age, he needs to be playing each week to continue his development and this seems like the ideal opportunity for him to do that.
It appears a move is inevitable and it will be interesting to see where he ends up and how Gotts performs in League Two if he decides to turn down a switch to Motherwell.
