Report: Sunderland want Leeds United talent Robbie Gotts

The youngster has been a hit for the under-23 ranks and could now embark on his first loan.

Sunderland are hoping to complete a deal to sign Leeds United midfielder Robbie Gotts before the EFL deadline on the 16th October, according to the Northern Echo.

A number of clubs are interested in the player who can play in midfield or operate as a right-back.

Gotts is thought to have been on Sunderland’s shortlist of targets for a while, although several other clubs hope to sign him too.

Huddersfield Town, Hull City and Swindon are all keen on securing the services of a player tipped for a big future by Leeds.

Gotts made two appearances last season as the Whites won the Championship at a canter.

He was also involved as Leeds were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Hull City on penalties last month.

 

The 20-year-old is a product of the youth academy at Leeds and a loan move will probably do his development the world of good.

Gotts has probably outgrown under-23 football having featured regularly in Carlos Corberan’s team last season.

With that in mind, a loan move would do him the world of good and Sunderland looks an attractive proposition.

Phil Parkinson has a decent track record of nurturing young talent and heading to the Stadium of Light might be a decent move for Gotts.

The Black Cats have made a strong start to their 2020/21 campaign, winning two and drawing two of their opening four matches.

Parkinson is keen to bolster his squad further though and the versatility of Gotts could make him a very shrewd signing indeed.
