The Lowdown: McKinstry’s Leeds career
The midfielder is now into the final 12 months of his Elland Road deal, though, and it looks as if a return to Scotland is on the cards.
The Latest: McKinstry transfer update
Football Insider provided an update on McKinstry after being informed by sources on Tuesday.
They claimed that Motherwell have agreed to re-sign the player on loan after a breakthrough in talks, with the youngster set to undergo a medical and finalise a move to Scotland in the next days.
The Verdict: Make-or-break loan move?
Should McKinstry spend the entirety of the 2022/23 campaign at Fir Park, he will be approaching the end of his contract at Leeds by the time he returns.
Therefore, it could be make-or-break for the midfielder back in Scotland, where some impressive displays may well earn him a new deal with the Whites.
Where will Leeds finish this season?
It didn’t take long for McKinstry to impress after joining in 2020 as he was training with the first team before the year was out, but he has failed to make a genuine breakthrough like Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood have, so a loan spell away from Elland Road could be exactly what he needs.
