Lee Erwin wants loan spell to improve Leeds chances

Striker Lee Erwin hopes that a spell on loan will help him break into Leeds United's first team.

Erwin, 21, joined Leeds in June from Motherwell but has yet to make his senior debut, despite appearing on the bench five times last month.

He scored twice for the Under-21s in a 3-3 draw with Queens Park Rangers' development squad on Monday.

"I'd enjoy getting out on loan and getting to play first-team football," he told BBC Radio Leeds.

"Once you get a taste of first-team football, like last year, it's a lot better than under-21 football.

"Hopefully I can get something sorted. If not I'm content to play my football here and develop and maybe get picked and get a chance."

Erwin scored five goals for Motherwell last season to help them avoid relegation, before turning down a new deal with the Steelmen and joining Leeds.

"I knew I wasn't going to be part of the first team straight away when I came in, but I'm enjoying it," he added.

"The main thing is for me to develop. I'm still 21 and to develop under Uwe Rosler is quite good for me."
