Leeds United star Aidy White admitted to BBC Radio Leeds that he’d written the season off after suffering a bad foot injury in pre-season.
White returned to action yesterday, playing 45 minutes for the club’s under-21 side in a 4-1 win at Huddersfield and hopes to feature again before the end of the season.
“It would be an absolute bonus for me (to play for the first team). With me being out for so long I'd sort of written the season off,” said White.
“I'd be delighted if I could get a game or come off the bench before the end of the season. It would be brilliant.”
Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn has shown faith to the club’s younger players, with Charlie Taylor currently the main man down the left, with Sam Byram also having featured down that wing.
However, with Leeds not really having anything to play for, Redfearn may choose to give White some game time at some point, which would work wonders for his confidence.
It would set him up well for time off over the summer and give him inspiration heading into pre-season for the 2015/2016 campaign.
The important thing is that he continues to train effectively and works hard when he’s given another chance, most likely in the under-21 side who have another game next week against Coventry.
Leeds have two games left before what could be an interesting summer away at Sheffield Wednesday this weekend before a home match against Rotherham, which could see White receive an awesome ovation from the club’s fans.
