Leeds: Robbie Gotts set to sign new deal - Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United youngster Robbie Gotts is set to sign a new contract at Elland Road this summer, according to journalist Beren Cross.

The Lowdown: Gotts impresses for Salford

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Salford City, making 23 appearances in League Two and being hailed as ‘outstanding’ by Richie Wellens.

It will have been an invaluable temporary spell away from Leeds for Gotts, who is now back at Elland Road ahead of pre-season next month.

The Latest: Youngster to sign new deal

According Leeds Live journalist Cross, Gotts signing a new deal is ‘the most likely avenue’ currently, with his Whites contract expiring next summer.

It is also stated than another loan move next season looks on the cards, with first-team opportunities difficult to come by under Marcelo Bielsa.

The Verdict: Loan moves makes sense

The fact that Leeds are seemingly willing to extend Gotts’ stay suggests he is viewed as a long-term prospect, although he will have to bide his time for now.

Another season in a lower league will see the midfielder mature further as a player, hopefully returning an even more well-rounded figure in 2022.

If Gotts were to stay at Elland Road in 2021/22, it is more likely that his progress would be stunted, with Under-23s football likely coming his way. A long-term deal and loan exit makes sense for all parties.
