Leeds United's Jay-Roy Grot was at the centre of a bit of controversy last week.

The Dutch striker, on loan from Leeds at Vitesse, was embroiled in a training-ground row with team-mate Riechedly Bazoer.

Bazoer, a Netherlands international, appears to be the aggressor after he was banished and omitted from Vitesse's defeat this past weekend.

Grot, who joined the Elland Road club in the summer of 2017, insisted after that defeat that he had no issue with Bazoer, but said it was not up to him whether his team-mate was brought back into the fold.

 

However, Bazoer is now back with the Eredivisie outfit after apologising for his actions, as confirmed by two Twitter messages that he sent on Monday.

When translated, the messages read: "Dear supporters, first of all I would like to apologise for what has happened. That should not have been done. I have to say that I have put the club, the staff and the team in a bad light. I am glad that after my apologies the team accepts me again in the group and has given me the opportunity to return.

"I'm going to work on my problems. In addition, I want to leave the past behind me and look forward in a positive way."

This is Grot's second successive season-long loan away from Leeds. The towering striker spent last year with VVV-Venlo in the same division after a disappointing first season in West Yorkshire.

The 21-year-old, who joined from NEC, managed only one goal in 20 Championship outings during the 2017-18 campaign.
