Report claims January loan move to Blackpool collapsed for Leeds United talent Leif Davis

The left-back was being lined up by Blackpool for a loan move.

Leeds United defender Leif Davis could have left the club on loan in January, according to a new report. 

A report from Leeds Live is suggesting that League One side Blackpool were keen on a potential loan deal for the player in January. That deal, reportedly, ‘did not work out’ and Blackpool went on to sign former Leeds United academy talent and James Husband on a permanent deal. 

Undoubtedly a loan move to Bloomfield Road could have been a big move for the defender. Marcelo Bielsa is a big fan of the left-back, as he made clear to Leeds Live in an interview at the back end of 2019, calling him “a great player, full of future.”

However, any potential move to Blackpool would not have been likely as Davis picked up another injury in the winter. 

 

Davis required surgery on knee cartilage in January, which would have surely prevented any potential loan move. 

It means Davis is now working hard to get fit again and find his way into the Leeds United first-team once again. 

However, when football gets back underway, perhaps Leeds United’s best move would be to find Davis a suitable loan location for next season, Blackpool or otherwise.
