Leeds United youngster Chris Dawson sends message following injury layoff

The Leeds United midfielder is highly rated but is yet to make the breakthrough at Elland Road.

Leeds United player Chris Dawson has taken to Twitter to celebrate nearing his return to training following a serious injury that ruled him out of action for four months.

The 21-year-old is something of an enigma at Elland Road, with his talent undeniable and yet many fans questioning just why he has not joined the club’s other young talents in breaking through to the first-team on a regular basis.

Injuries have certainly played their part, but it will be interesting to see what the rest of this season has in store for the young Welshman considering his current contract expires in the summer.

Taking to social media on Wednesday afternoon, Dawson wrote, “Last physio session done before I’m back in full training. (It’s) been a long four months.”

Dawson has only played four first-team matches for Leeds to date and he now has a new manager to impress on the training field in the form of Steve Evans.

The former Rotherham United boss has got Leeds playing well and the Whites have climbed up to 13th place in the Championship as a result.

Whether Dawson can make much of an impact this season remains to be seen but his first aim will be to impress in training before getting back on the field with the under-21s, before he has what could be one final push for a breakthrough at Leeds.

Following Dawson’s message a number of Leeds fans responded and you can read a selection of those comments below:
