Leeds United forward Jay Roy Grot has told the Dutch media he hopes to prove himself to the Championship club whilst at VVV-Venlo.

The youngster is currently on loan with the Dutch side after struggling to make an impact in his debut season with Leeds United.

Speaking to, Grot was asked about his ‘bad buy’ reputation at the Champions club and his thoughts on a future with Leeds United: “That was tough, yes, it did affect my confidence and my fun for football, that’s what I’m looking for now, and I’m well on my way.

“Because they are still my club, I hope to score as many goals as possible, and then I’ll see if they think it’s good enough.”

The youngster played twenty Championship games for Leeds United last season, scoring just one goal. However, most of those appearances came from off the bench and with the appointment of Marcelo Bielsa this summer it seemed like the forward would have to go out on loan to get first team football.

Since arriving at VVV, the 21 year old has put in some impressive performances and earlier this month he was called up to the Netherlands U21s for the first time.
