3 goals in 3 games: Jay-Roy Grot is showing Leeds United what he is capable of

The Dutch youngster is in prime form for loan club VVV Venlo.

In 2017, Leeds United made some surprising acquisitions in the transfer market under the guidance of Victor Orta and Thomas Christiansen.

One such arrival was that of Dutch attacker Jay-Roy Grot. He joined the club from NEC Nijmegen in August 2017, in a deal reportedly worth £1.5 million.

He endured a tough first season at Elland Road. The forward scored one goal and provided one assist in 22 appearances for Leeds. With that in mind, he was loaned back to the Netherlands in the summer, joining VVV Venlo until the end of the 2018-19 season.

Not many Leeds fans will have heard much about him since. He has had an indifferent season, going in and out of the starting XI for much of the campaign.


However, he has recently found a run of form which may suggest he has a future at Elland Road after all.

Last night he scored in a 2-2 draw with Heerenveen. Following on from goals in a 1-1 draw with Fortuna Sittard and a 4-1 triumph over De Graafschap the 21-year-old has scored three goals in his last three games.

Leeds United management will no doubt be pleased with such form and the youngster will hopefully get a chance to prove himself in pre-season.
