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.
