Leeds United defender Lewie Coyle will think about his future at Elland Road in the summer.

The 23-year-old is currently on loan at League One side Fleetwood Town and has spent the last two seasons there.

Coyle is currently focusing on helping Joey Barton’s side get into the third tier Play-Offs before returning to Leeds in the summer. His contract with the Whites expires in 2020.

He joined Leeds as a youngster and rose through the youth ranks there. Coyle has made 23 appearances for their first-team so far in his career and has also enjoyed loan spells at Harrogate Town and now Fleetwood.

Coyle has been speaking to the Fleetwood Weekly News about his future: “Football is a strange game. I still have a year left on my contract at Leeds. Ultimately I’m still a Leeds United player but things change and move fast in football.There are still a number of games left until the end of this season.”

I’m just focusing on them and hopefully playing the remainder of the games; go on an unbelievable run and who knows? The ultimate aim and goal would be to finish in the play-offs and try and get this club where it wants to go.If not, it is something I will have to sit down and re-evaluate in the summer”

The Hull-born right-back also added: “I’ve not spoken to anyone from Leeds for a while now. The boys are flying, the boys are doing well; hopefully we will see them go on and get promotion – but I haven’t spoken to anyone at Leeds about it, no.”
