Leeds United fans respond to Jamal Blackman's injury update

Several Leeds United fans have sent messages to Jamal Blackman after the Chelsea goalkeeper shared an update on his recovery.

Blackman began the season on loan at Leeds but saw his Elland Road spell cut short abruptly in November - just as he was set to replace Bailey Peacock-Farrell as Whites number one.


The towering shot-stopper suffered a broken leg playing for Leeds' Under-23s and was forced to return to Chelsea.

According to Blackman's Twitter, it has taken until now - four months since the incident - for him to fully stand up.

And he's received the following tweets of goodwill from those of a Leeds persuasion - some of whom would like to see him back with the Whites one day...








Leeds have since signed the former Real Madrid goalkeeper, Kiko Casilla, as competition for Peacock-Farrell on a long-term deal.

The Whites are currently third in the Championship standings - a point off the automatic positions - and could face Blackman's employers in next season's top flight.
