Leeds boss confirms Granddi Ngoyi could finally make his debut this weekend

Neil Redfearn

The loanee from Palermo has not yet played for Leeds United.

When it comes to the transfer market it has certainly been more of a case of out rather than in for Leeds United recently.

However they did sign some players at the end of the transfer window, all from Italian football with varying levels of success.

Edgar Cani arrived and the Albanian striker has struggled for form and minutes. Sol Bamba on the other hand has become an integral member of the Leeds United back line and one of the form players in the Championship.

As for Granddi Ngoyi, who like Bamba arrived on loan from Palermo, no Leeds fan knows what to expect yet – as he is yet to feature.

He has been injured since his arrival and is still waiting his first appearance for the club.

However, he might just get involved this weekend. In quotes from the Yorkshire Evening Post, Neil Redfearn has confirmed he might get a shot against Blackpool. He also confirmed Rudolph Austin, who has been injured since scoring in the 3-2 loss to Watford in February, could return:

“He’s got a chance and we’ll see how he is.

“I’m mindful of the fact that he’s been out injured for a while but if he and Rudy are happy and 100 per cent then we can consider them.”

Of course for either to get into the starting XI would be very difficult. Leeds are in great form at the moment and have not conceded in three games, so dropping anyone from this team would be a risk from the Leeds boss.

But Leeds fans will certainly hope to get a first look at the powerful midfielder Ngoyi this weekend.
