Leeds United round-up: Coyle loaned, City link squashed and Stockdale loan move

All the latest news and gossip from Leeds United.

Coyle springs out

Leeds United have allowed talented full-back Lewie Coyle to return to Fleetwood Town on loan for the first half of next season.

The 22-year-old will remain at the club until January, working under the guidance of new Cod Army boss Joey Barton.

The move has come as something of a shock to Leeds fans. Coyle was excellent for Fleetwood last term and some were hopeful he might get a chance at Elland Road next season.

Instead, he is off to Fleetwood to continue his development.

City shopping unlikely

Despite reports to the contrary, it appears a number of Manchester City youngsters are not on their way to Leeds United this summer.

It had recently been suggested that the relationship between Pep Guardiola and new Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa could see City players heading to Elland Road.

However, despite links with the likes of Angus Gunn, Brahim Diaz and Tosin Adarabioyo, the Manchester Evening News says City are more likely to use current feeder clubs such as Girona or NAC Breda for such deals.

Stockdale deal

Leeds are hopeful of signing Birmingham City goalkeeper David Stockdale on loan this summer. It had previously been reported that Leeds were looking for a permanent signature of the Leeds-born stopper. However, according to the YEP, they now want a loan with a view to a permanent deal.  

Leeds are also growing impatient with the deal and will not wait much longer for decisions to be made.
