Leeds United boss Steve Evans says Casper Sloth needs to do more

Denmark Flag

The Danish international has not featured for Leeds in 14 months.

Leeds United boss Steve Evans has been speaking to the press this afternoon ahead of a weekend meeting with Burnley in the Championship.

One Leeds player who will not be expecting to get a chance in that fixture will be Danish midfielder Casper Sloth.

The central midfielder has not featured for the Leeds first-team since February 2015 and has played the majority of his Leeds football for the under-21s.

The Leeds boss was asked about Sloth today and he had this to say about the 24-year-old. He is quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post as stating:

"He's a fantastic young man but he needs to do more to be in the team considering his competition."

Sloth does have plenty of competition ahead of him in the pecking order. Leeds are blessed in the heart of midfield with Liam Bridcutt, Toumani Diagoruaga, Lewis Cook, Alex Mowatt, Luke Muprhy and Kalvin Phillips all seemingly ahead of Sloth in the pecking order.

Sloth, who joined the club from AGF Aarhus in August 2014, is a Danish international with eight caps for his nation and surely deserves a chance to prove himself before the end of the current season.

But it seems he will not get that chance under Evans.
