The right-back underwent ankle surgery a little over a month ago.
Leeds United have certainly had some defensive troubles recently. The club have been decimated by injury and suspension trouble, including the absence of regular right-back Luke Ayling.
He had to undergo surgery on an ankle problem in January and was ruled out for the rest of the season.

His absence has been sorely felt at the club, highlighting how influential a part of the team he is and how important his consistent performances at right-back were for Leeds United.
The 2017-18 season appears to be a write off for the defender, but he is clearly getting ready for the new campaign.
Leeds United posted this tweet today, highlighting the first-team regular undergoing his physio as he pushes toward a comeback to action:
It is great for Leeds fans to see Ayling trying to get back into full fitness already, just one month after his surgery.
The season is over for Ayling but it highlights his commitment with the West Yorkshire club to see how he is pushing already.
It was a sight that was also universally appreciated by Leeds fans, who will no doubt wish he was still fighting fit at the back for the club...
