Charlie Taylor tweets joy at return to Leeds United first-team training

The left-back has been out of action with glandular fever.

Leeds United have been having to get by in recent weeks without their first-choice left-back.

Charlie Taylor has been out of action in recent weeks with a bout of glandular fever. The illness has kept him out for six weeks and he is not expecting a return before December.

However he rejoined in full training with the Leeds first-team today and was pictured in action with his team-mates.

He has now tweeted on the matter. He is clearly buzzing to be back in action as Leeds United look to continue their good form against Rotherham United in the Championship - a result that would take them three wins on the bounce under Steve Evans:

However the left-back will not get a chance to go up against his former manager and youth coach Neil Redfearn's Millers this weekend.

The Yorkshire derby has come too soon for his recovery with the QPR game however now looking more likely.

Here's hoping he is back in Leeds action again as soon as possible.
