Will Huffer joins Barnet on one-month loan

Will Huffer joins Barnet on one-month loan

Leeds United won’t accept anything less than automatic promotion to the Premier League in the current campaign, having defied expectations up until this point at Elland Road. 

Indeed, the club’s supporters would never have thought that Marcelo Bielsa would transform the Whites into title challengers this season, after finishing in 13th in the last campaign.

However, the Yorkshire club had to wave goodbye to one of their youngsters recently, as according to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Will Huffer has joined Barnet on a one-month loan.

The 20-year-old made his first-team debut back in November but he hasn’t been able to secure regular minutes, with Bailey Peacock-Farrell keeping him at bay. And, with Kiko Casilla joining earlier on this month, a loan move was the only way for the youngster to secure regular minutes.

Of course, Huffer has plenty of potential and he will no doubt play a big part in Leeds’ future if he continues to develop, with a successful loan spell helping his cause.

THE VERDICT:

Will Huffer is a very impressive young goalkeeper who enjoyed some success on his first-team debut, but a loan move seems like the only option at this moment in time, with regular minutes aiding his progression.

The goalkeeper should get used to loan moves for the time being, as Kiko Casilla and Bailey Peacock-Farrell will be extremely difficult to budge, unless an injury occurs.
