Lewie Coyle has been discussing his latest exit from Leeds United, as he again heads to Fleetwood Town on loan.
The right-back has spent the past two seasons on loan with the Cod Army and this week his return to Highbury was confirmed. The 23-year-old has joined the club on loan for an initial six months but is expected to remain with Fleetwood for the entire 2019-20 campaign.
Last season, Coyle was an undisputed starter for Joey Barton’s side, operating in a number of different positions. However, he clearly did not do enough to convince Leeds United to keep him on board this term.
Now, speaking to the Blackpool Gazette, Coyle has discussed his desire to win promotion with this loan side.
“It sounds daft but it makes perfect sense for me to come back.
“We had a few conversations about things moving forward and I jumped at the chance when they made it apparent they wanted me back…
“They have brought some great faces in and that shows where the club are feeling and how they want to go moving forward. There are exciting times ahead.
“I think the additions we have brought in will help catapult us to the next level and push to get promoted out of this league.”
Some Leeds United fans were disappointed when they discovered Coyle would again leave on loan. The local lad has impressed many fans in the past. However, it seems Marcelo Bielsa does not consider him at the level necessary for a Championship promotion battle.
Coyle appears to have no long-term future at the club. With just 12 months left on his deal, Leeds are hardly scrambling to keep him.
So he will be hoping to do enough to secure a potential permanent transfer to Fleetwood once his deal at Leeds expires next summer.
