Motherwell linked with three-way fight for Leeds United midfielder Robbie Gotts

Leeds United midfielder Robbie Gotts has been linked with a permanent move to the Scottish Premiership with Motherwell (LL).

The 21-year-old has been with Leeds United – who are currently in the English Premier League – since he was a child and has worked his way through the academy. But he looks set to leave with Elland Road chances limited. Motherwell were first linked with Gotts earlier this summer in a deal thought to be a loan.

But a permanent move could beckon. Motherwell manager Graham Alexander isn’t the only one interested in Gotts, however, with English League Two duo Barrow and Oldham Athletic both keen. Gotts has made three appearances as a senior player for Leeds United.

He made his debut in the FA Cup against Arsenal. Alexander is looking for two new additions to his ‘Well squad before the end of the transfer window today, one of which will be Sondre Solholm Johansen. The Norwegian centre-back is in Scotland to complete the transfer as Motherwell head into the international break with a 1-0 win v Dundee.

Alexander said: “It’s a brilliant win for us. It was a fantastic ball in from Jake Carroll. Tony Watt’s made a great run, little deft flick. I didn’t think we played as well as we have done in the previous weeks. A clean sheet was more than welcome for us.”
