Report: Leeds receive loan offers for Lee Erwin, Kalvin Phillips, Casper Sloth and Lewie Coyle

Leeds United have received loan offers for four of their players.

According to a report in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United have received offers from Football League clubs for four of their fringe players, with Steve Evans in the process of assessing his squad.

Lee Erwin, Kalvin Phillips, Casper Sloth and Lewie Coyle have all been targeted by Football League clubs with the loan window closing next week.

Erwin has already spent a spell on loan this season, playing three games with League One side Bury, but failing to find the back of the net. He has been back at Elland Road since just before the international break, and is now back in the Under-21 squad to keep up his fitness.

Phillips, Sloth and Coyle are all regular Under-21 performers who are expected to not feature for the senior side much this term, unless Evans has the utmost need due to major issues with his first-team squad.

Loan exits for these three players makes sense, as it will give them all the chance to try and impress in competitive football, rather than being forced to play at Under-21 level, which looks to be below them.

Erwin would be a good signing if a club manages to bring him in, but Evans may be against loaning out the forward due to the lack of cover in the attacking ranks in his senior team.

It is stated that Evans was assessing his squad following the 2-0 victory over Wycombe Wanderers, and considering Erwin netted the opening goal, the head coach could believe that the striker is worth keeping at Elland Road.
