A select round-up of the latest news relating to Leeds United…

Leeds United take on Birmingham City later today with Neil Redfearn’s side worryingly close to the relegation zone.

Leeds are just two points outside the Championship’s bottom three and a match against 12th-placed Birmingham means things are not about to get any easier.

In early team news, the BBC reports that Alex Mowatt, Adryan and Tommaso Bianchi could all be recalled while Mirco Antenucci is also said to be in line for a return.

Charlie Taylor is expected to start following the sale of Stephen Warnock and both Jason Pearce (who captained the under-21s last week) and Billy Sharp are reportedly pushing for recalls.

In other news, Leeds’ official website has reported that youngster Ross Killock has completed a loan move to Halifax Town.

The defender has made a youth loan move for the remainder of the season and he may well be hoping this switch ultimately earns him future chances at Elland Road.
