Should Leeds United move for former England under-21 star Scott Loach in Ross Turnbull's absence?

The Notts County stopper previously played under new Leeds boss Steve Evans at Rotherham.

Leeds United currently have something of an issue in the goalkeeping department.

The club recently lost Ross Turnbull for the majority of the season after he broke his ankle during the international break. Previous boss Uwe Rosler had already made it clear that he hoped to bring in a new keeper as he wanted Charlie Horton and Eric Grimes to continue playing in the under-21s.

It is not yet known if Steve Evans also wants to bring in a new goalkeeper to back up Marco Silvestri, but if he does, could he move for a former Rotherham United player?

Scott Loach was not a regular under Evans at New York Stadium. He failed to establish himself at Rotherham after his move from Ipswich Town.

He spent last season with The Millers but struggled with fitness at Rotherham and was behind the likes of Adam Collin and Emiliano Martinez. He went on to spend time on loan at Bury, Yeovil Town and Peterborough United.

This summer he was instead moved on. He joined Notts County on a free transfer, signing a two-year deal at Meadow Lane.

However he is again struggling for first-team football. He is number two to Northern Ireland international Roy Carroll and would be an experienced option from the bench in the absence of Turnbull.

A former England under-21 international his career has gone downhill since leaving Watford in 2012.

But he is still an experienced performer who would do a good job as back-up to Silvestri. Whether Notts County would be willing to let him go out on loan would remain to be seen, but as long as they had a recall option in the deal it could be a good move for the former Leeds boss to bring his former backup stopper at Rotherham to Elland Road.
