Looks like Bailey Peacock-Farrell’s time at Oldham Athletic has been cut drastically short, as the Latics have decided to terminate the young goalkeeper’s loan after the end of his trial at Boundary Park.
Goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell back at Leeds after Oldham decide against loan deal:https://t.co/i30sqlmnXd pic.twitter.com/5IP0TuZo9f— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) July 18, 2017
After a four day trial at the University of Bath, Oldham decided that they didn’t want BPF on loan. So what does that mean for him? Well, his future with the club could be in doubt. YEP God Phil Hay reported that the Whites are willing to release the 20-year-old for the season. This comes as no surprise as Leeds United currently have Felix Wiedwald, Rob Green, and Marco Silvestri all in the mix for game time. Alternatively, Leeds United can find a different club that is willing to take Peacock-Farrell on loan, and I do hope that ends up being the case.
Leeds should think twice before releasing Bailey Peacock-Farrell. He’s still only 20 years old and has been viewed as a long-term, his time will come kind of player. Sure, there’s absolutely no reason for having 4 senior squad keepers. But it’s a little more complicated if you dig a little deeper when it comes to Leeds. Rob Green may or may not be unsettled thanks to competition from Felix Weidwald, and has been rumored to join Boro and Arsenal, of all clubs. Marco Silvestri has been rumored to have been offered to Bristol City + cash for centre-back Aden Flint. Whether or not either of these two deals happen, I don’t know. But if either one of (or both) these deals happen, then there’s a glaring hole at GK.
Am I reaching with that one? Yea, probably.
But what I’m getting at is it would be a shame if we let young talent just kinda go, and I hope that doesn’t happen to Bailey Peacock-Farrell.
What’s YOUR reaction to Bailey Peacock-Farrell’s loan being terminated by Oldham? Will he be loaned out to a different team, or has his time at Leeds come to an end? Let us know in the comments. MOT
