Leeds head coach Neil Redfearn delighted to have Aidy White available for selection

Leeds United winger Aidy White could make his comeback against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend.

Leeds United head coach Neil Redfearn has told the club's official website of his delight at having Aidy White available for selection again.

White has missed the entire season so far with an ankle injury, but he is fit and available again after completing 45 minutes for Leeds' development side earlier in the week and Redfearn has suggested that he will be in his squad to face Sheffield Wednesday.

Leeds take on the Owls tomorrow afternoon and White will be delighted to be involved after such a lengthy period on the sidelines.

Redfearn, too, will be pleased to have him back at his disposal and feels that he can add a new dimension to Leeds' attack.

"He’s happy with the injury and he’s had no comebacks or relapses," Redfearn said. "We can think about Aidy White.

"If you look at Aidy White’s strengths, his assets are maybe something we haven’t got. He’s got blistering pace, he goes past people. He can play left-back or on the left-wing.

"A fit Aidy White would be a real asset to this side. He’s got Championship experience, he’s played at this level. He’s been on the scene for a while now so it would be nice to get Aidy back."

White offers pace and power and has the ability to play in a position that has proven problematic for Leeds this season.

Redfearn has been forced to use full-backs and central midfielders as wingers throughout the campaign so far and, therefore, having a natural wide-man available will be a big boost for his side.

Although White is unlikely to make the starting line-up against Wednesday, he will be hoping to impress if he does take to the field - with Leeds looking to end their losing run, which now stands at five games.
