Salford. Signing Robbie Gotts from Leeds. Midfield prospect. Been at Lincoln for first half of season.— Alan Nixon (@reluctantnicko) January 15, 2021
The midfielder, who has also played a lot of football as a right-back, has spent the first half of the season at Lincoln City. He hasn’t had 90 minutes often enough and when he has it has been in the cups.
Gotts scored his first professional goal in Lincoln’s 4-0 win over Accrington Stanley in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday. However he has only started four league games for the Imps and Leeds are likely to not think that is enough for his development, as was the case with Jordan Stevens at Swindon Town before his switch to Bradford City.
Salford signing Robbie Gotts from Leeds [Nixon]. Long-rumoured transfer target when Wellens was at #STFC, must be keen....— Benjamin Wills (@_BenWills) January 15, 2021
Gotts was heavily linked with a move to Swindon Town in the summer, with Richie Wellens apparently an admirer of Gotts’ talents. Wellens left Swindon to join Salford in November 2020 and could make the move happen now.
This move will mean that Gotts drops from League One to League Two, while that isn’t ideal it is more important that he plays regular football than which of those two leagues he is in.
