Leeds United transfer news: Coyle staying put, McKinstry targeted and Shaughnessy in Scotland

Coyle remains

Leeds United will allow Lewie Coyle to remain at Fleetwood Town for the rest of the season, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post. The talented full-back has been in fine form for the League One club this season and his current deal expires on the 2nd January.

Despite Leeds looking short at the back in recent times, they have decided the best move for the 23-year-old is to remain at Highbury Stadium until the end of the season.

Coyle has been an ever-present for the Cod Army this season.
