Lincoln City are reportedly set to clinch the loan signing of Leeds United midfielder Robbie Gotts today after winning the race for the 20-year-old.
Gotts has been the subject of significant interest during the summer window with Charlton Athletic, Huddersfield Town, Hull City, Swindon Town, and Doncaster Rovers among the clubs linked.
Lincoln boss Michael Appleton suggested yesterday that he was keen on the Whites midfielder and it appears the League One club are set to win the race to sign him.
According to journalist Alan Nixon, the Imps are set to clinch a deal for Gotts today after tabling the best deal for the player.
It is understood that despite Huddersfield being coached by former Leeds coach Carlos Corberan, Lincoln’s League One rivals Doncaster and Swindon were the two clubs that pushed them closest at the end.
The midfielder was handed his debut by Marcelo Bielsa last season and featured in the Carabao Cup earlier this season but it appears the Yorkshire club feel he will benefit from getting more senior minutes out on loan this term.
Do Huddersfield Town and Leeds United have these 10 things in common?
It appears the Imps are set to win the race for Gotts, which is fantastic news for the League One outfit.
The 20-year-old looks a really bright prospect and will surely be hungry to prove himself if he’s given regular first-team opportunities at Lincoln.
The demand for Gotts shows just how highly thought of the midfielder is and it’s impressive that the Imps have won the race for him. Appleton has brought in a number of exciting loanees over the summer and his side could be one to watch this term.
