Leeds United loanee Robbie McDaid enhances claim for new contract with three goals in four games

The talented young forward is in fine form at Lincoln City.

Leeds United have rightly picked up a reputation for developing young talent in recent times. Some of their best talents have graduated straight into the first-team.

The likes of Alex Mowatt, Lewis Cook and Charlie Taylor are testament to this excellent youth system.

Others however are asked to go and impress on loan.

One such player is Robbie McDaid.

The Northern Irish striker went out on loan to Lincoln City in January as he hopes to convince the Yorkshire club to keep him on beyond the summer.

He initially struggled for form at Sincil Bank but has recently been in fine form.

McDaid scored at the weekend in a 2-2 draw with Southport. This followed a goal the previous week against Chester. Add that to the strike against Tranmere at the end of March and the Leeds talent has now notched an impressive three goals in four games.

Lincoln are currently seeing out a season in which they have flirted with the National League play-offs, but will ultimately finish in mid-table and McDaid is enjoying the freedom to thrive with the club.

His contract at Leeds is set to expire this summer but the 19-year-old will hope his recent goalscoring form will convince Leeds to hand him a new deal.
