Leeds: Whites have emergency recall option on Charlie Cresswell

Leeds: Whites have emergency recall option on Charlie Cresswell -Leeds United News

Leeds United correspondent Phil Hay has revealed that the Whites have an emergency recall option for defender Charlie Cresswell.  

The Lowdown: Cresswell’s Millwall stint

Cresswell, hailed as ‘unbelievable’ by Leeds presenter Joe Wainman, made the move to Championship play-off hopefuls Millwall over the summer on a season-long loan.

Since then, the 20-year-old has started seven of a possible ten second-tier games, scoring three times and providing one assist. He is actually Millwall’s top scorer at this moment in time and appears to be enjoying a productive loan spell away from Elland Road.

The Latest: Hay’s claim

Hay shared an in-depth story and interview with Cresswell for The Athletic on Tuesday. He stated that there is ‘a provision for his parent club to recall him in January, though that safety net is for emergencies’.

The reliable reporter did add that ‘the whole point of the transfer was that he stayed at The Den and played’, something which he is currently doing.

The Verdict: Stay at Millwall?

As long as Cresswell continues to play regular first-team football, then it would make sense to avoid a potential recall in the New Year. Jesse Marsch doesn’t have a shortage of centre-backs, especially with Liam Cooper returning from injury in recent weeks.

Therefore, Cresswell, who has been Millwall’s best-performing player this season, as per WhoScored, should remain in the capital and could well break into Marsch’s plans next season if he continues his impressive form.
