Botaka joined Leeds from Dutch club Excelsior in the summer of 2015 and was expected to be a huge success at Elland Road.
The 22-year-old, who can play as a winger or as a forward, arrived in England will a strong reputation, but the youngster has flattered to deceive so far.
The DR Congo international attacker has been able to make only nine appearances in the Championship for Leeds so far this campaign.
Botaka has yet to score a goal and has created only eight chances. The youngster has a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 20%, and has won two headers, six dribbles and six tackles.
HITC Sport reported on Friday that Leeds are considering sending Botaka out on loan before the close of the January transfer window, although the youngster has already played for two clubs this season.
Leeds fans have been discussing the future of the skilful winger on HITC Sport and on Twitter.
Below are some of the best comments:
ItSaulOrNothing: “If Evans won't play him then loan him out and let him prove he's capable. He should rip-up League One if he's as talented as we all thought. Wherever he goes he needs to be getting regular first-team football.”
John Brown: “I think he's probably the type of player Leeds are lacking, having a little bit of flair, but Evans won't give him a go.”
Whiteknight: “The vanarama league awaits just more proof buy cheap buy twice I really don't understand why a cheap person like mc can waste millions on loads of substandard players but won't spend the same money on 2 or 3 quality players who will actually move us forward.”
Botaka is a player who needs confidence. If he doesn't get more minutes were gonna loose a promising player #LUFC— bae-rardi (@baerardi) January 29, 2016
I still think J.Botaka will work at #lufc as long as he's sent out on loan for a half/ season so he can get to grips with English football.— LUFC fan (@GoTkunt) January 29, 2016
seemed to me that Botaka was bought because we couldn't get limbombe in the summer & now we're going again! Jordan must be so poor man #lufc— Joe Wainman (@wainman1988) January 29, 2016
