‘That would be nuts’ – Most Leeds United fans don’t want to see Elland Road man depart

The Leeds fans in the Transfer Tavern want to see young Lewie Coyle given a chance in the first-team at Elland Road this season and aren’t happy with reports in the Yorkshire Evening Post that claim he could be loaned again.

New Fleetwood Town boss Joey Barton is keen on bringing Coyle back to Highbury stadium after a very successful loan spell with the club last season saw him make 42 appearances, register four assists and pick up both the player’s player and supporters’ Player of the Season Awards after a superb campaign. Now though, the Whites want to see Coyle given a chance in the Championship under Marcelo Bielsa.

Next season Bielsa is expected to experiment with a three at the back system at Elland Road and that could provide Coyle with the chance he needs to impress at right-wingback. However, with both Luke Ayling and Gaetano Berardi it’s hard to predict whether Coyle will be called upon. If the fans were in charge, Coyle would be a starter with Ayling as one of the three and Berardi shipped out as soon as possible.

With that being said, here are the views of the fans:

As you can see, the Whites in the Tavern are all keen on keeping Coyle at Elland Road, it’s just a matter of seeing whether Bielsa is in agreement.
