Aidan White is stepping up his injury rehabilitation, running for the first time since his last setback.

The versatile Leeds star posted a picture on his Instagram page on Monday, showing himself running on an anti-gravity treadmill as he aims to regain fitness.

The 23-year-old hasn't played a single game all season, struggling with a fractured foot, having undergone surgery twice since picking up an injury in August.

White would be a useful player for this current Leeds side, able to play at left-back and at left-wing. With cover for Charlie Taylor light in defence and a lack of width in midfield, he is a player who likely would have got opportunities had he been fit.

Back in October, White told the Yorkshire Evening Post he had returned to running, only to later suffer a setback in his rehabilitation.

White underwent a second operation in January, but is now out of his protective boot and has now entered the next phase of his recovery.

An anti-gravity machine reduces pressure on joints, making it easier for users trying to recover from injury problems.

It's unlikely White will play any meaningful role this season, but the fact he is now back on his feet and aiming towards a return is positive progress.
