Leeds United have a number of players out on loan and the club will be keeping track of their progress.
Several Leeds players were loaned out with different tasks. Some are looking to break into the Leeds team in the future and others are simply playing for their future. Here is a summary of the six Leeds loanees.
All three of Leeds’ strikers that are currently out on loan are struggling for goals. Rafa Mujica, Jay-Roy Grot and Pawel Cibicki have one goal between them this season.
That was scored by Grot. The 21-year-old scored against Willem II in his second game for Vitesse. But he is now seven games without a goal operating predominantly from the left flank.
Cibicki is also in Holland but he is yet to get off the mark in the Eredivisie. The 25-year-old has only managed three outings so far, racking up a combined total of 116 minutes on the pitch.
Mujica also has three games to his name. The 20-year-old striker is on loan at Extremadura in the Spanish second tier. The ex-Barcelona player, who joined Leeds this summer, has played less than 45 minutes in total and has been left out of the squad a few times.
Too early to tell
It is too soon to judge Laurens De Bock, who has not yet completed 90 minutes for Sunderland in the league. He made his debut against Sheffield Wednesday in the EFL Cup and has since started the next two league games.
However, the Belgian left-back has been replaced shortly after the hour mark in both games. De Bock, 26, will be hoping to keep his spot in the team under Sunderland’s new manager.
Lewie Coyle is proving to be Mr Reliable once again. The 23-year-old has been a mainstay for Joey Barton’s Fleetwood Town side this season in his third loan spell with the League One club.
Whether Coyle has any future at Elland Road remains to be seen. He is only on loan until January when a decision will be made. But Fleetwood would welcome him back in a heartbeat if Leeds are ready to get rid.
Conor Shaughnessy is also impressing. The 23-year-old has gone from a Leeds centre-back outcast to a regular in a holding midfield role for Mansfield Town. With eight games under his belt, he is becoming a regular for the Stags in his newfound role.
