Leeds United legend Eddie Gray, who was voted as the Whites third greatest player of all-time in 2000, has spoken to BBC Radio Leeds about the performances of Alex Mowatt this season.

The former winger, who played in over 550 games for the Yorkshire-based club, spoke about Mowatt’s lack of progression during this campaign.

Mowatt, who’s already played over 100 games for Leeds despite being just 21 years-old, won Leeds United’s Players’ Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards for his performance during the 2014-15 season.

Many expected the former England Under-20 international to continue that progress this season but Gray hasn’t been impressed:

“Previous to this season, the star of the young players was Alex Mowatt.

“He has not progressed this season as much as I would have liked him to progress.”

Joining the Whites as a nine year old, Mowatt has spent his entire career at Elland Road but made just 22 starts this season and struggled to hold down a regular starting place.

A versatile player, the midfielder has been deployed in the center of midfield as well as on either wing.
