Marcelo Bielsa will be keen to strengthen his Leeds United side this summer as they look to make another bid for promotion next season.
They were narrowly pipped to second place by Sheffield United in the last campaign before being dramatically beaten by Derby County in the play-off semi-finals.
One player who does not look like he will be part of any plans again, however, is striker Jay-Roy Grot with Vitesse Arnhem and Hearts both eager to take him on loan.

He made 33 appearances for VVV-Venlo last season in Holland, bagging six goals and assisting three more for his teammates.
The 21-year-old’s time with Leeds has been rather underwhelming so far.
He was signed by Thomas Christiansen in the summer of 2017 for £1.44million but has gone on to play just 22 times for the club, scoring just once.
The reaction to the news from Leeds fans was a mixed one, with some wishing he would stay and some eager to see the back of him…
I always hated the fact some jeered a 19 year old kid.

Personally like to see him bloom under Bielsa but won't begrudge him a move to your old Jam Tarts

Does he need a lift to the airport….?

It’ll be a good loan for him that , there is a player in there I’m sure

A loan to Hearts be a good move for Grot and club, still think he's got potential but had massive loss of confidence. Hope he gets second chance at Leeds too.

Another odd signing, why sign players that will consistently go out on year loans! I understand sending out academy products! But signing someone, that won’t get a game?

I can't understand why we don't give him a chance through pre season. If he doesn't make the mark then sell him, not loans
