As Souleymane Doukara returns to training, can he impress Uwe Rosler?

The Leeds striker has joined in with the pre-season preparations.

He was one of Leeds United's more interesting case studies last season and now he's back in training.

Indeed, as is well known among the Whites faithful, Souleymane Doukara was one of the Yorkshire side's worst-performing signings of last season.

The 23-year-old was Leeds' joint-top scorer with Mirco Antenucci at one stage, with his loan move to Elland Road being made permanent.

Soon, though, it all fell apart. Doukara was criticised for his lack of ability and lack of work-rate.

But the Frenchman has been kept at the club so far this summer and has returned for pre-season training. That may mean the Leeds forward simply hasn't attracted any interested clubs.

Or could it mean Uwe Rosler feels Doukara still has something to offer the Yorkshire club?

The German has used a 4-3-3 system in the past and Doukara may offer more out wide than as someone who plays in a 4-4-2 or in in a slightly deeper role in a 4-2-3-1.

Either way, it'll be up to the 23-year-old to impress Rosler in pre-season training. He's back - but is he at Leeds to stay?
