New contract deal with Leeds United in line for youngster before sealing loan move

0

Leeds United appear set to allow Under-23 wing Stuart McKinstry to leave the club on loan this summer with a move to League Two on the cards.

Leeds are very focused on strengthening the squad this summer as they add more depth to both the senior squad and hopefully the Under-23s.

Andrew Taylor has his work cut out right now to reassemble his youth setup after seeing a handful of his star players enter the senior fold last season.

Stuart McKinstry has been a mainstay of the Under-23 side since being promoted to PL2 in 2020, and even made his senior and Premier League debuts last season.

However, the young winger turns 20 in September and is expected to gain valuable first-team experience this season which he is unlikely to acquire in the Leeds setup.

Do Leeds need a new left-back?

The Graham Smyth of the Yorkshire Evening Post reports that the winger is wanted in Ligue 2 on loan this summer.

A new deal is set to be signed by the Scotland youth international before he leaves for the fourth tier on loan, with Hartlepool being one of his options at the moment.

McKinstry signed his current contract in the summer of 2020 after his promotion, until 2023which means he has one year left.

McKinstry deserves exposure to senior football and this is the right way for him to go about it.

I’m not convinced he’s ready to be part of our Premier League squad for next season, but I expect him to go to Ligue 2 and have a very good season.

A new contract for him is also a smart move as he certainly has the potential to become a first-team player in the future.

He wouldn’t have made his debut last season if he wasn’t good enough to be considered.
