Leeds have today cut the loan of Cameron Borthwick-Jackson short by six months. The youngster may have all the ability we needed for that position but something clearly wasn’t right and he will now return to Manchester United, Laurens De Bock arriving to fill the left-back spot.

The club made a short and blunt statement today.

“Leeds United can confirm Cameron Borthwick-Jackson’s loan spell has been ended early and the left-back has returned to Manchester United. 
Borthwick-Jackson joined Leeds back in August and went on to make six appearances for the Whites.
We would like to thank Cameron for his efforts during his time at the club.”

The situation regarding Borthwick-Jackson was strange. He signed and played in the League Cup, impressing at both left and centre-back before starting against Preston North End in the league. He put in a man of the match performance that day and then didn’t play again until the League Cup, in fact he didn’t make a single appearance in the league after that which seems bizarre given his talent. There were question marks over his attitude in a loan spell at Wolves last season and it seems the same questions may now be asked.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
