If he's out on loan he needs to be somewhere that he will get game time regardless of how he's performing. You can't come in for 45 mins here and there every 2 or 3 weeks and be expected to be in top form. You need game time to get into form. It's a pointless loan if he's not gonna get the chance to play regularly, otherwise he may as well be training with us and playing in the cups for us.
I do agree to an extent but it's still early days.
There aren't many places that an 18 year old can go to get guaranteed games, unless he drops down a couple of divisions which for someone of his potential ability, probably isn't ideal.
If he starts playing well at Leeds and still doesn't get game time, then I think we need to reconsider the loan but for now, the season has only just started so both he and Leeds need time.
