Blow for Leeds United as Charlie Taylor extends his return date

The left-back was previously expected to be returning to first-team football this week.

Leeds United have recently been having to do without their first-choice left-back. Charlie Taylor had been one of their better performers this season but has not played since the 3rd October defeat to Birmingham City.

He has been suffering from an illness that has an impact on his spleen and therefore has been sitting out action since then with his ailment.

Now he has spoken about when he should make his comeback.

Taylor acted as a co-commentator for Leeds United TV when his side took on Wycombe Wanderers in a friendly on Friday night.

He spoke about his return from injury, as reported by Inside Futbol:

"I think looking more maybe being with the physio department [next week] and building up my fitness a bit more.

"So I think a couple of weeks and then I'll be back in full training.

"Then I'll be trying to impress the manager."

That news will certainly come as a blow to Leeds fans. Taylor was expected to return to first-team football after the international break but it now seems as though he has at least another fortnight before he features in the Leeds team again.

Leeds fans will be hoping to see him in action as soon as possible, but it looks like the most likely date will be the Hull City game on the 5th of December.
