Could Sloth, Bianchi and Coyle leave Leeds on loan this week?

Taking a look at three Leeds United players who could leave in what remains of the emergency loan window.

The emergency loan window could yet allow Leeds United to bring some reinforcements to Elland Road before the end of the week, but it could also see some of the Whites’ fringe players temporarily head for pastures new.

Here we take a look at three Leeds players who could well head out on loan in the coming days:

Casper Sloth

At 23, midfielder Casper Sloth would have been hoping for far more first-team football than he has managed since signing for Leeds from Aarhus.

So far Sloth has featured just 14 times for Leeds’ senior side and he is yet to make a single appearance this season.

Instead he is a regular for the under-21s but surely the time has come to send him out on loan and give him some much-needed minutes.

Tommaso Bianchi

With plenty of midfield options for Leeds manager Steve Evans right now, it would be no great surprise to see Tommaso Bianchi also complete an emergency loan this week.

The 27-year-old has only recently returned from injury but a temporary switch would allow him to get some first-team football before potentially returning to challenge for a starting spot at Leeds from 2016.

Lewie Coyle

With Scott Wootton, Sam Byram and Gaetano Berardi all ahead of him in the pecking order, right-back Lewie Coyle could be set for a loan move to make the next step in his career.

After recently signing a new contract at Leeds Coyle has a bright future at Elland Road, but the time has come to see what he can do in the Football League.
