LUFC Leeds weighing up Gradel options

Leeds Unites are understood to be in negotiations with Leicester City about the future of on loan midfielder Max Gradel.

Gradel comes to the end of his loan period after the Exeter City game this weekend, having finished his 93-day loan period, the maximum for a short-term deal.

Leeds are interested in keeping him on loan until the end of the season but Leicester City are wanting him to either return to them or signed on a permanent deal.

The 22 year old has become a fans favourite during his loan spell at Leeds United, making a number of major contributions when coming off the bench.

He`s also chipped in with three goals, including a last minute winner in the game against Leyton Orient in November.

He initially joined on a one month loan deal back in the middle of October, he made an immediate impact and the loan was extended until the beginning of January. It was then extended to the 17th January and the maximum 93 day short term loan period.

Leicester are believed to be wanting a six figure sum for the player who hasn`t featured for the Foxes in the Championship this season.

Leeds have yet to bring in any new players during the transfer window, but have cancelled the contracts of four players and allowed defender Alan Sheehan to extend his loan at fellow League One side Swindon Town until the end of the season.

I would like him to stay until the end of the season but I don't think he would make the same impact in the Championship. If they won't loan him to us then I would sooner us look somewhere else for the long term than have him like Robinson and Prutton etc....etc..... warming the bench on a big wage.

I think Max is just what we need he's a good player and he gets stuck in and runs at the defence and did chips in with a few goals...He needs to start not sit on the bench and he'll really show us what he can do...Get the check book out Simon we can well afford him in my opinion he'll pay us back...

His form has dipped a bit of late and i watched him 90 mns on Tuesday and while he put one or two good runs in he was much less effective than Aiden White playing the same role on the left and he certainly doesnt have the pace of Aidey. If we can loan him and get a longer look at hom that fone but dont think we should commit ourselves for a bench man.

I could be the only leeds fan that thinks this since the huddersfield game i don,t think hes done that much and by all accounts wasn,t that good against scunny in the reserves could be that he as gone past that honeymoon period if we do sign him i hope its only on loan till the end of the season or a fee no more than Ł200k i think the dury is still out on him
