Leeds set for talks on potential recall for full-back Coyle
Leeds United Head Coach Thomas Christiansen has said that he will discuss a possible recall for full-back Lewie Coyle.
The 22-year-old is currently on a season-long loan at Sky Bet League One outfit Fleetwood Town, where he has impressed in the first-half of the season.
Discussion regarding a potential recall has come following the news that Luke Ayling will miss the rest of the season through injury.
The 26-year-old had surgery on an ankle injury sustained in the draw against Nottingham Forest on New Year’s Day.
The defender, who signed a new long term deal with the Whites in the summer, has been an important part of Thomas Christiansen’s first eleven this season.
Asked if they had considered a recall for Coyle, Christiansen told the media "no, we haven't at the moment.
"We will have to talk to Victor (Orta)."
The Whites have been boosted with the addition of left-back Laurens De Bock, who joins the club from Belgian outfit Club Brugge.
The 25-year-old has signed a contract with the Elland Road club until 2022.
The defender has struggled for games at Brugge this season, featuring in six Jupiler Pro League games and one Champions League clash.
However, Brugge's system of 3-5-2 with wide midfielders means that De Bock's opportunities have been limited.
