Leeds United currently has a substantial list of players out on loan, and these players can be categorized into two groups. One group comprises young talents sent on loan to gain experience and develop their skills, while the other group consists of more experienced players who left the club following relegation from the Premier League to avoid playing in the Championship.
Among the latter group of players are individuals such as Marc Roca, Brenden Aaronson, Rasmus Kristensen, and center-back Robin Koch. Koch has now discussed the possibility of an extended stay at his temporary club, Eintracht Frankfurt, indicating his comfort and satisfaction with the current situation. He mentioned that he could “very well imagine” a longer-term future with Eintracht and that he wants to achieve a lot there.
These comments may not be well-received by Leeds supporters or manager Daniel Farke, who is dealing with his own challenges at the moment. Given that Koch’s Leeds contract expires next summer, it would be advisable to part ways with the central defender. Although Koch has performed well in the Bundesliga this season and even captained his loan club, it seems highly unlikely that he would willingly return to the Championship from the German top-flight.
Of course, circumstances might change if Farke manages to guide Leeds back to the Premier League in their first season in the Championship. In such a case, Koch would likely only consider returning for top-flight football, as he wouldn’t be involved in the second-tier battle.
