Robbie Gotts will move out of Leeds United on loan this summer, but his destination will be determined by the game-time on offer.
Leeds are weighing up what the do with Gotts on the back of their promotion to the Premier League.
Both Huddersfield Town and Hull City are interested in the 20-year-old, but after a month of speculation, nothing has been finalised.
However, things are starting to become clearer now.
After a role in pre-season, Gotts missed out on the matchday squad at Anfield last Saturday.
Since the middle of August, there’s been plenty of speculation of where Gotts is heading.
Huddersfield looked a good fit due to the Carlos Corberan link, but Hull have retained an interest.
Alan Nixon provided an update at the weekend after a period of silence, confirming that the latter was back in the mix.
Today, he’s suggested that wherever Gotts will get played the most is likely to be the option Leeds go with.
This makes complete sense. Whilst we want Gotts to test himself in the Championship, it’s pointless him going to Huddersfield and sitting on the bench.
Corberan rates him, but there’s a pressure on Huddersfield this season and it might not be the right time to be blooding the young midfielder.
At Hull, the pressure is slightly less intense. They are in League One and expected to do well under Grant McCann.
If Gotts can go there and play a big part in their push for promotion, it would be a good experience.
This maybe explains why it’s taken so much time to sort this deal. Leeds, simply, have to get it right for Gotts.
