If Casper Sloth does not move on loan this week is his time in England almost over?

The Leeds United midfielder has rarely been seen since he signed for the club.

With the latest emergency loan window approaching Thursday’s deadline, most of the talk about Leeds United has been in terms of potential new arrivals.

However, there is also the question of who could leave Elland Road in the next few days, with one player in particular potentially seeing his time in England coming to a close if he does not move on loan before the end of the week.

Casper Sloth continues to impress both in training and for Leeds’ under-21s, with the Danish midfielder regularly singled out by coach Paul Hart for his hard work and contributions. But with a first-team chance nothing more than a pipe dream, it is somewhat surprising that another English club has not made a move for the 23-year-old.

After all, here is a goal-scoring midfielder who regularly finds the net at under-21 level and who has proved himself to be the consummate professional despite being overlooked time and again.

Leeds manager Steve Evans clearly does not see a place for Sloth in his senior setup, yet if another Football League manager does not make a late swoop, we could see Sloth leave England for good in the summer.

After all, if he was seen as someone’s salvation, an emergency loan would surely be a no-brainer.

Sloth has never embarrassed himself when he has been given a chance for Leeds. But with only 14 appearances for the Whites since arriving from Aarhus in the summer of 2014 – and none this season – an apparent lack of other English interest surely spells the end of his time in this country before he got the chance to show what he is capable of.
