Well, looks like at least one loanee might still have a future at the club.
A forgettable first season for Jay-Roy Grot in England but Leeds didn't close the door on him when they sent him out on loan. He's earned a first Holland Under-21 call-up:https://t.co/6VFgr2ldwA— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) November 13, 2018
Jay-Roy Grot was the subject of a lot of hype from the club and when he, predictably, didn’t live up to it, he was slated by the fans at Elland Road and appeared to be on his way out of the club this past summer.
However, back in the Netherlands and at VVV Venlo, he’s impressed enough to be included in the upcoming U21 match for the Netherlands, as they will take on Germany. Does this mean he still has a future at Elland Road? Honestly, it’s too soon to tell, but at least signs are pointing that he might be coming good after all.
