Leeds United currently have more than 20 players out on loan. And they are all at different stages of their respective careers.
Here are three loanees who Marcelo Bielsa should keep his tabs on and consider using next season.
Coyle has spent the past season-and-a-half on loan at Fleetwood Town, racking up nearly 100 appearances for the League One club.
The 23-year-old predominantly plays as a right-back but can also play anywhere across the midfield, making him a useful versatile player.
Leeds have operated with a threadbare squad for most of this season and academy graduate Coyle could add depth to Bielsa’s options.
With first-team game time limited at Leeds, Pearce was sent on loan to Scunthorpe United in January.
The 21-year-old left-back has had a mixed spell with the League One club and his ability will be pushed to the test in the last few games as he prepares for a relegation scrap.
But Leeds rate the England under-21 starlet as a future first-team prospect and he could be given pre-season to change Bielsa’s mind.
Wilks has been on fire during his loan spell with promotion-chasing League One club Doncaster Rovers.
The 20-year-old operates as a right-winger for Rovers and his pace, skill, strength and eye for goal make him a deadly attacker at that level.
Wilks looks like a real talent for the future and Bielsa could fast-track the left-footed starlet into the first-team.
