It appears that Max Gradel is destined to play in the third tier of English Football…
He made a lasting impression while on loan at Bouremouth in 2007-08; made a big contribution to City’s promotion from that level last season; and is currently on loan at Leeds playing a supersub role that has helped to keep Simon Grayson’s side on top of League One.
Gradel’s initial loan term was for one month, but both Leeds and Gradel are keen to extend that to the middle of December after some impressive performance from the 20 year old. He scored his first goal for the club in the 4-0 win over Yeovil last week.
Grayson said of Gradel: “He’s got a certain something about him, that va va voom which can turn games. Give him the ball and he can run at people and create chances. He’s an exciting player who can be anything he wants.”
Having been unable to break into Leicester’s first team this season Gradel will be keen for first team football, and there is talk that the move could be made permanent in the New Year.
