Leeds United confirmed yesterday that highly rated youngster Mallik Wilks had headed out of Elland Road for a loan spell in League One with Doncaster Rovers.
???? | Leeds United can confirm Mallik Wilks has today joined League One side Doncaster Rovers on loan
— Leeds United (@LUFC) July 11, 2018
The 19-year-old Academy graduate took in two loan spells last season as he continued his development as a player and the young striker showed plenty of promise. He headed to Accrington Stanley first where he made a total of 24 appearances – ending up with a League Two winners medal for his involvement, before spending the second half of the campaign with Grimsby Town where he made an additional six showings.
Whilst with Accrington he scored a total of five goals, but it must be noted he only made seven starts.
He heads to the Keepmoat Stadium on a deal that will expire on January 2nd
With Leeds United having troubles when it comes to incomings to the club this summer and new additions, fans were quick to pounce on the fact that we seem to have no issues in managing to get players out of the club gates.
Plenty were also quick to wish Wilks well.

‘Dun dun dun….another one bites the dust’.
In seriousness, good loan move for him. Let’s hope he does well and scores plenty of goals.

We’re all finding this very funny

Another promising youngster going out on loan,I’m not been funny but we are a bit stretched in numbers to fulfil the fixtures in the championship now.WHAT is going on at LEEDS UNITED,all us Leeds fans want is a bit of commitment from the owner and board to put a side together.

Can the last one out, please turn off the lights. When are we going to buy someone, not a loan, but an actual buy.
