Barry Douglas was linked heavily with Watford FC earlier in the week, and it now appears that the deal is likely to be a loan move. With this being the last year of the former Scotland international’s contract at Leeds, this could well pave the way for a permanent deal in the summer. Whether his permanent destination is Watford or somewhere else, we have likely seen the last of Douglas in a Leeds shirt.
WATFORD. May take Douglas from Leeds on loan. Blackburn also considered but seem to have moved on.— Alan Nixon (@reluctantnicko) October 11, 2020
Robbie Gotts has been linked with loan moves to several clubs this summer. Huddersfield Town were heavy favourites for a long time, then Swindon Town looked the likely destination having already taken Jordan Stevens on loan. Now, Charlton Athletic and Lincoln City have entered the race for midfielder who can also play both as a winger and a full-back.
CHARLTON. LINCOLN. Both in the hunt for Robbie Gotts at Leeds on loan. SWINDON dragging their feet ...— Alan Nixon (@reluctantnicko) October 11, 2020
Personally, Charlton would be my preference. Lee Bowyer and Johnnie Jackson were both midfielders and could be good people for Gotts to learn from. However, as Jordan Stevens has started well at Swindon and Richie Wellens seems to play good football that would also be a good destination.
