Izzy Brown has responded to a Leeds fan's question on Twitter by insisting that it will not be long before he is ready to play for Marcelo Bielsa's side as he continues his recovery from injury.
Brown has not played since early January having undergone surgery on an ACL injury while he was on loan at Brighton last season. Leeds signed the attacking midfielder well aware that he would not be ready to feature for Bielsa's men for several months.
But when asked by a supporter how his rehabilitation is going on Twitter, Brown dropped a very encouraging hint that it may not be too long before the Elland Road faithful finally get to see the 21-year-old in action.

It should be a big boost for Leeds to have Brown involved once he is fit. For a while, it appeared that his return could be the icing on the cake for Bielsa's side as they set the early pace in the Championship.
But with Leeds enduring a more underwhelming run of form of late - that has definitely left some supporters concerned given how season played out - it appears that Brown's comeback could be more important than many would have previously expected.
Like Patrick Bamford, the forward can be treated like a new signing when he does come into the fold. And given that he has scored seven goals and provided five assists in 38 Championship appearances during his career, he could potentially be exactly what Leeds need should they struggle to rediscover the form that they showed in the early weeks of the season.
