Leeds United announced on Friday that Lewie Coyle has left the Championship club to return on loan to Fleetwood Town until January 2020.
Coyle came through the youth system at Elland Road and has made 23 first-team appearances for the Whites in all competitions.
The 23-year-old has spent the last two seasons on loan with Fleetwood, however, and has now returned to the club until the January transfer window.
It is difficult to imagine that there is a future for Coyle at Leeds.
After all, the defender is not exactly a spring chicken and has not secured a minute of action for the Whites since the 2016-17 season.
A number of Leeds fans have been on social media offering their views on the latest loan move.

And it would be fair to say that a number disagree with the situation as many want him to simply depart on a permanent deal.
