Leeds United loanee Jay-Roy Grot’s loan spell at Vitesse Arnhem could be in doubt, according to reports in the Netherlands.
Leeds United decided to send the Dutchman out on loan again this season, following a strong end to his spell at VVV Venlo last term. The Holland under-21 international was snapped up by Vitesse, joining his hometown club. It was a popular move for the reported (YEP) £1.5 million Leeds man, who told the club website playing for Vitesse was a ‘boyhood dream’.
However, he has struggled in recent weeks, as have the club. Vitesse are on a five-game losing streak in the Eredivisie, which has cost manager Leonid Slutsky his job.
Joseph Oosting is now in interim charge and, according to De Gelderlander, it could mean the end for Grot.
They report that Slutsky wanted Grot to add physicality in attack but that he does not fit in with Vitesse’s traditional style of play. Oosting is set to adopt a ‘different playing style’ and it is suggested Grot may struggle to play a role.
It would be a real shame for Grot if his dream loan move at his hometown club came to an end at this point. There is also surely no chance he will find himself being used at Elland Road by Marcelo Bielsa, considering he has loaned him out on two occasions.
January could be an interesting month for the Dutchman.
