Young left-back Tyler Denton has returned to the club after a loan spell with Port Vale. Denton was on a season-long loan but has returned due to family reasons and will probably stay with the club and play some development football.

Denton is highly rated by the club and signed a new deal before he left for a loan spell with Port Vale. The young left-back made his debut for the first-team last season in a League Cup game at Luton Town where he scored a beauty to win the game. He didn’t feature in any of the league games but did play during the cups under Garry Monk. This season the club decided it was better for him to be playing regular first-team football. he played 15 times for Port Vale before returning to the club this week. Port Vale are currently sitting just below mid-table in League Two.

The need for a left-back has been much discussed recently, the current first choice left-back Gaetano Berardi saying that the team probably needed someone better in that position going forward. Cameron Borthwick-Jackson was loaned in from Manchester United to fill the position but for some reason it hasn’t worked out. The loanee is expected to start on Sunday at Newport but for all we know that could be his last game. The chopping and changing of loans has been in the news recently, three players have returned to the club, Ouasim Bouy and Mallik Wilks along with Denton, as well as Yosuke Ideguchi being loaned out to Cultural.

About Author

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.
