One of the clubs best young players is set to head out on loan again, Mallik Wilks has been liked with a chance in the first-team at Elland Road but looks like he will be joining Grimsby Town for the remainder of the season.
Wilks recently returned from a loan spell with Accrington Stanley after impressing for the League Two side, scoring a few important goals for the club. It now looks like he will head back to League Two, but will this time link up with Grimsby Town, a side who are doing well this season. Recently promoted Grimsby are now a steady side in League Two and, much like their rivals Lincoln will feel like they can push on in the next few years.
Wilks is one of the brightest talents in the Leeds United system at the moment and many fans have been asking the question, is he ready for the first-team? The answer is probably no but we need something new in the striker department at the club and after his loan spell he was certainly an option. A good half to the season with Grimsby may well mean he travels with the squad in pre-season and gets his chance in the side. It’s a big 4 months for Wilks.
