Lewis Coyle claimed on social media that his permanent move to Fleetwood Town from Leeds United “made perfect sense” after the deal was wrapped up on Friday.
The defender came through the academy ranks at Elland Road and played 23 senior games, but has spent the last two-and-a-half years out on loan at Fleetwood across three different spells.

The English right-back has penned a three-and-a-half year deal at the Highbury Stadium and will continue to play a key role for them.
He’s already played in 28 games across all competitions this season and chipped in with six assists from defence.
Coyle, 24, posted a farewell message on Twitter after ending his time at Leeds.
“Made up to finally sign a permanent deal at Fleetwood Town. Loved my time here over the past few years so made perfect sense. Just wanna say good luck to the lads Leeds for the rest of the season,” Coyle wrote on his personal Twitter account.
Coyle is a talented defender that has thrived in England’s third-tier, so it makes sense that he’s finally joined Fleetwood on a permanent basis after so many loans.
He’s definitely got the potential to succeed in the Championship, but Leeds are on bigger things now under manager Marcelo Bielsa and are looking upwards.
They have the likes of Luke Ayling, Stuart Dallas and Gaetano Berardi all as quality right-back options in the squad.
