Leeds United's Aidy White says he feels 'brilliant' and is hoping for first-team chance this season

Aidy White has been talking about his hopes for the rest of the season at Leeds United.

Leeds United player Aidy White has been speaking to the club’s official website about his return from injury and his hopes for the rest of the season.

The 23-year-old has not featured since picking up an ankle injury in pre-season but thankfully he returned for the under-21s on Monday, playing his first 45 minutes of the campaign.

White is a versatile player who can occupy either the left-back position or a place on either wing, and while he acknowledges he will not be starting a first-team match any time soon he could still play a role between now and the end of May.

“I feel brilliant,” the Leeds player said following his return. “I had a good week’s training and I’m ready to be back involved.

“Redders (Neil Redfearn) picks the team so all I can do is my best and show him what I can do. Hopefully now he'll give me a shot in the last couple of games to go."

Leeds could have done with more width this season and that is one area of the field it would be no surprise if they strengthen in the summer. But if he can remain fit and get more minutes on the pitch, White could yet save his side both time and money.

The next few matches may show if Redfearn sees a future for White at Elland Road, but it will be pre-season that could make or break his Leeds career.
