In Leeds United’s last eight Championship games, Jaidon Anthony has only played 61 minutes.
On deadline day in the summer, the 24-year-old went from Bournemouth to Elland Road on a season-long loan, with Luis Sinisterra going in the other direction.
Nevertheless, since making their respective moves, the two players have only achieved three starts between them, indicating that neither has yet gone as expected.
Furthermore, it was reported last week by Team Talk that Leeds and Bournemouth will have discussions regarding terminating their respective loan agreements early in January because of insufficient playing time.
However, Phil Hay notes in a recent Square Ball Podcast episode that it’s unknown what Anthony’s “intentions” are at this time, although he However, at the moment, he does feel very much like the backup option.
Anthony was harmed by the play of other players.
“As for Anthony’s intentions, I honestly don’t know with him,” Hay remarked. Not only has he not played much, but Spence has also not played much due to injury, and Anthony has not played much. However, Anthony feels like the fourth option out of four and is very much on the periphery.
At this level, Anthony was a respectable enough successor for Sinisterra, but he has sadly been victimized by the poor performance of those in his position, like Dan James and Crysencio Summerville.

Summerville has been difficult to get minutes because he is currently the left side’s top option and has made himself unstoppable with his recent play.
With a lackluster showing, the 24-year-old failed to establish himself as a regular at Stoke City, where he made his most recent start nearly two months ago.
Despite this, a lot of people still think Anthony is a player with Premier League potential, so he probably feels unhappy about his circumstances before January.
