Leeds: Jamie Shackleton could leave permanently next summer

Leeds: Jamie Shackleton could leave permanently next summer -Leeds United News

Leeds United youngster Jamie Shackleton’s loan exit has a permanent option for next summer.

The Lowdown: Shackleton joins Millwall

The 22-year-old struggled to become a key part of the Whites’ plans last season, only starting seven matches in the Premier League overall.

For that reason, Shackleton has now been loaned out to Millwall for the whole of the 2022/23 campaign, as he looks to make his mark in the Championship and rack up some consistent playing time in senior football.

Now, a fresh update has emerged that could have a bearing on the youngster’s long-term future.

The Latest: Option to buy emerges

According to London News Online sports editor Richard Cawley, Millwall have a clause to sign Shackleton permanently next summer, should they feel it is worth their while.

The Englishman joins fellow Leeds man Charlie Cresswell at the club, having made 78 appearances for the Whites to date.

The Verdict: Natural conclusion at Leeds?

This is an ideal move for Shackleton, whose future may lie in the Championship, considering he has struggled to consistently shine in the Premier League.

Kurzawa at Leeds?

Yes, just what we need!

No, look elsewhere!

No, look elsewhere!

Despite that, he was once hailed as both ‘quick’ and ‘energetic’ by Marcelo Bielsa, and he has the ability to become a key midfield presence for a club of Millwall’s stature, and perhaps Victor Orta and Andrea Radrizzani will look to insert a buy-back clause if the deal is made permanent.

Should the loan move not work out and the Lions opt not to sign Shackleton, a permanent exit from Leeds in 2023 would still make sense, at which point he would be 23 and have just one year remaining on his current deal, making it a risk for the club to potentially miss their last chance of cashing in.
