Leeds United round-up: Grimes on improvement, Gotts contract and Heckingbottom ‘naive’

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Leeds United.

Grimes on Leeds spell

Former Leeds United loanee Matthew Grimes has been discussing his spell at the club. The midfielder struggled during a spell at Elland Road under the management of Garry Monk on loan from Swansea City.

He failed to have any real impact at Leeds and fans were disappointed with his displays.

Speaking to Swans TV after last night’s 2-1 defeat at Elland Road he said his game has improved ‘massively’ since then and his spell in West Yorkshire was not a ‘true reflection’ of his ability.

Gotts new deal

Robbie Gotts is set to sign a new deal at Leeds United, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post. The 19-year-old has been in and around the first-team this season and is set to be rewarded with a new contract in West Yorkshire.


The full-back and winger is considered one of the best youngsters at the club and could have a future under Marcelo Bielsa’s reign at Elland Road.

Heck was ‘naive’

Former Leeds boss Paul Heckingbottom is the new manager at Scottish club Edinburgh and has been discussing his time at Elland Road, as reported by the Scottish Sun.

He was sacked in June after just a few months in charge. Leeds decided a new avenue was needed and went for Marcelo Bielsa.

Heckingbottom admitted he went into the role ‘naive’ but learned a lot from his experience in West Yorkshire.
