Jay-Roy Grot has told Dutch outlet ELF Voetbal that he is in the dark about his return to Leeds United – when his loan spell at VVV-Venlo expires.

The 20-year-old attacker struggled at Elland Road since his £1.5million to Leeds from NEC Nijmegen in the summer of 2017. He managed just one goal in 22 games.

It saw Marcelo Bielsa send him on loan to Venlo in the summer, where he has since impressed. He has made his debut for Netherlands Under-21 side, and scored twice in 13 Eredivisie appearances.

Speaking to Dutch media, Grot stated that he no longer has any property in Leeds. He also claimed that he has not been told when to report back to Elland Road.

“I try to watch Leeds matches as much as possible”, Grot said. “They are not broadcast live on TV, but via livestream, and my girlfriend and I see almost every game.

“The club belongs in the Premier League. Not only in terms of size, but also in terms of history and fans. Every home game is sold out and a lot of supporters come. Leeds is also a nice city.

“I do not have my apartment there anymore. Rented that out. I do not know when I have to report back to Leeds.”

Grot has a contract at Elland Road until the summer of 2021, with many of the belief that he will have a future at Leeds.

It remains to be seen if he does indeed return to Yorkshire, with his loan spell at Leeds set to expire at the end of the current season.
