Leeds United approached by League One club over defender deal – Bielsa keen to sell

According to a report from Football Insider, League One side Blackpool have made their move to try and sign Leeds United defender Lewie Coyle in the January transfer window, registering their interest in the right-back.

We covered reports here on The72 earlier this month stating that Leeds United were keen to sell defender Lewie Coyle in the January transfer window. Coyle is currently out on loan in League One with Fleetwood Town and the Cod Army are said to be among the sides keen on a permanent deal for the 24-year-old.

However, they could face competition for Coyle’s signature from League One rivals Blackpool. The Tangerines have been credited with interest in the Leeds United man and are said to have made an approach for Coyle, as per a report from Football Insider.

Coyle has spent the last two and a half seasons on loan with Fleetwood Town and has previously said that he would be willing to turn the loan deal into a permanent one. However, Simon Grayson has identified the Leeds academy graduate as a transfer target and is keen to get a deal done this winter.

Coyle has played a total of 116 times for the Cod Army along the way, providing 15 assists in the process. The 24-year-old has shown versatility in his time with Fleetwood, playing at right-back, right-midfield and even in the middle of the park as a centre-back or central midfielder on a few occasions.

Coyle made his breakthrough into the Leeds United senior side under Steve Evans, going onto played 23 times for the Whites. However, with the Whites reported to be ready to listen to offers for Coyle, it is highly unlikely that he will be adding to that total.
