Stuart McKinstry has sealed a loan move away from Leeds United for the 2022/23 campaign.
Leeds moved to bring McKinstry to Elland Road back in 2019, signing the teenager from Motherwell.
However, the 19-year-old has only made two senior appearances since then, against Fulham in the EFL Cup and then Tottenham in the Premier League.
McKinstry has now sealed a loan move back to Motherwell, where he will look to develop further during the 22/23 season.
Over on Twitter, McKinstry outlined his delight at returning ”home” with a simple message:
Is a loan the right thing for McKinstry?
Leeds’ stance under Jesse Marsch is different to what it was when Marcelo Bielsa was in-charge when it comes to loans.
They are open to players going out on loan, with Charlie Cresswell and Jamie Shackleton amongst those offered an earlier chance at first-team football elsewhere.
McKinstry is the latest and it’s an exciting opportunity for him returning to Motherwell. At 19, it could be the start for his promising career.
He sounds buzzing to be making the move, so good luck to him.
