Report: Leeds want to sell 24-year-old, name their price

Defender Lewie Coyle has been valued at £500,000 by Leeds United as he looks set to leave the club in the January transfer window, according to Football Insider.

Coyle spent the first half of the season out on loan at Fleetwood Town and is clearly not in Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa’s future plans.

The 24-year-old has not missed a single minute of football under Fleetwood manager Joey Barton having played the entire 90 minutes in all 22 league and four cup matches so far.

It is therefore no surprise that Fleetwood are pursuing a permanent deal for Leeds fringe man Coyle, as the report suggests.

There is also interest for the full-back from League One sides Blackpool and Sunderland, as per Football Insider.

Leeds man Coyle has also impressed with his attacking ability, providing five assists to his teammates this season.

He started in Fleetwood’s 2-1 defeat to Portsmouth in the FA Cup third round despite his original deal expiring on 31 December 2019.

Coyle’s contract expires in the summer and Leeds will therefore be keen to offload him in this window rather than letting him leave for free in the summer.

Fleetwood are in seventh place in League One and will be eager to hold on to the right back as they aim for promotion to The Championship.

Leeds meanwhile are looking to gain promotion themselves to the Premier League, sitting first in the Championship after 26 matches.
