Leeds United winger Jordan Stevens is heading to League Two side Barrow on loan on deadline day.
Leeds have seen a handful of youngsters leave this summer both on loan deals and permanent moves, as they search for regular exposure.
Added recruitment in the under-23s has led to a much greater standard as the side take to the PL2 Division 1 this season, meaning some players need to leave to get guaranteed minutes.
Jordan Stevens is a man who’s had a tough time in the past two years as his game time has reminisced somewhat.
A loan move last season to Swindon Town wasn’t fruitful at all and he tried to resurrect his campaign with a move to Bradford City in January, where he made 16 league appearances with no goals or assists.
Now, the winger looks set to return to League Two to join Barrow on loan, with Phil Hay confirming the move is set to go ahead imminently:
An initial loan deal, Stevens’ current contract is due to expire in 2022, meaning this deal could spell the end of his time at Leeds.
It hasn’t quite worked out for Stevens at Leeds despite a handful of appearances where he has looked fairly lively.
The emergence of Crysencio Summerville has elevated the standards necessary to get the nod in Marcelo Bielsa’s squad out wide.
Hopefully, he can hit the ground running and find a permanent home soon because he’s undoubtedly a talented player.
You’d imagine he will be getting regular minutes this season after having a decent run at Bradford.
