Leeds United news round-up: A key injury, Jack Harrison and a new target in the news


The return of the Championship is just three days away for Leeds United.

Sunday will see the Whites return to action as they travel to South Wales as they take on Cardiff City in their first match for over three months.

Despite the absence, Leeds are keen to finish the job that they started.

Sunday lunchtime will see the club travel to take on Cardiff City as they look to finish the job that they started in the Championship.

Marcelo Bielsa's side are seven points clear of the play-off spots with just nine games to go, meaning that promotion is very much within reach for the Whites.

That said, there's still plenty of work to do.

The club working hard both on and off the pitch, and these are the biggest stories to come from Elland Road over the last 24 hours.

Leeds United dealt Pablo Hernandez injury blow

Leeds United have been dealt a potentially huge injury blow ahead of their clash with Cardiff City this weekend.

The Whites return to Championship action after more than three months as they travel to South Wales hoping to get their promotion race back on track.

However according to Phil Hay, they may have to do it without Pablo Hernandez.

The midfielder is reportedly a doubt for the clash with the Bluebirds due to a 'niggle' which has proved troublesome over the last couple of days.

While the severity of the knock is not yet known, The Athletic's Leeds United writers says that he remains a doubt for Sunday's clash.

Jack Harrison opens door to Leeds United return

Jack Harrison has opened the door to a potential Leeds United return next season.

The Manchester City winger's loan deal ends at the end of the season, however he did hint that he'd be open to returning to Elland Road.

Speaking to Leeds Live, he said: “As a player, it’s hard for me to say why I wouldn’t want to come back here. For me, it’s been a great experience.

“The lads have been great, working with the coaching staff I’ve learnt a lot and just the club as a whole have really helped me out.

“There’s no reason why I should say ‘no I don’t want to be here next season.'"

Leeds United plot move for 19-year-old stopper

Leeds United are interested in a move for goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson.

According to Norwegian newspaper Dagsavisen, as quoted by Sports Witness, the Valerenga stopper is a long-term target of Marcelo Bielsa's side after they expressed an interest last summer.

Despite having a contract until 2022, the 19-year-old could be temped by a move to West Yorkshire should they come in with another bid this summer.
