Leeds United forward Jay Roy Grot has given an indication he will return to Leeds United at the end of the season and fight for a place in team next season.
The young forward is currently on a season long loan with Dutch side VVV-Venlo.
Voetbal Primeur have reported on comments the Leeds United loanee made in the mixed zone following VVV’s 4-1 loss to Feyenoord last night: “I do not have a long contact, I’ll try to develop as well as possible and then we’ll see what happens next year. I did not succeed in the first year (at Leeds), which is why I am now looking to play a lot. The English dream is still there.”
The Dutchman signed for Leeds United from NEC last year but failed to make an impact in his debut season in England, scoring just one goal for the Championship side. He’s since gone on record to say he struggled during his time at Elland Road, and was impacted by negativity from fans.
However, Grot has managed to get his career back on track. Returning to his home country in the summer, he’s been a key player in VVV’s climb up the table in recent weeks.
His performances earned him his appearance for the Netherlands U21 team last month and it seems he still wants to have a future at Leeds United.
