Injury update on Leeds United midfielder Granddi Ngoyi

Leeds United midfielder Granddi Ngoyi has reportedly recovered from his latest setback.

Is there finally good news on the horizon for Granddi Ngoyi at Leeds United?

The central midfielder signed on loan from Palermo in January but is yet to make a single appearance due to injury.

The Yorkshire Evening Post now report there is good news for Ngoyi. Last night it was reported he is in with a chance of finally making his debut.

The report states: "The on-loan Palermo midfielder is back in full training after his latest setback."

Ngoyi played an under-21 game against Crystal Palace in mid March, but head coach Neil Redfearn told BBC Radio Leeds after the draw with Blackpool that he had suffered a reaction to his previous thigh injury and was back in the treatment room.

Lewis Cook is out of the game with Blackburn after suffering an ankle injury on international duty for England under-19s, but Ngoyi is unlikely to go straight into the side.

Cook's place in the midfield trio with Murphy and Mowatt is likely to be taken by Rodolph Austin, while teenager Kalvin Phillips also has a case.

Given his frustrating start, Leeds are most likely to take their time with Ngoyi and start him on the bench, but with two games in three days over Easter, there is a real chance the Frenchman will be seen at one stage or another.
