Leeds youngster could line up against his former Crystal Palace teammate.
Leeds United youngster Bryce Hosannah was thrown a career lifeline this week by being named on the club’s pre-season tour.
Hosannah impressed on Leeds’ controversial post-season tour of Myanmar last summer.
Tipped for big things, the young right-back’s season was struck by injuries last year, with multiple stints out costing him the chance to step up. With injuries to Leeds’ first team stars too, it was a missed opportunity.
Hosannah, 20, is one of just 16 players named on tour.
He has a chance to impress against Manchester United, who boast his former Crystal Palace teammate Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Hosannah and Wan-Bissaka played in the same academy team at Palace, but both have had different career paths.
Hosannah was released from Palace’s under-18 side in 2017, before being snapped up by Leeds.
Wan-Bissaka worked his way into Palace’s first team, before landing a £50 million move to Manchester United this summer.
Hosannah can still make it at Leeds, but needs a bit of luck.
Last season was very much a lost year for him.
A strong performance against his former teammate’s new side this week could be just what he needs to kickstart his career.
