Leeds: Phil Hay provides a promising injury update for the Whites.

Daniel Farke has made a strong start to his tenure as manager at Elland Road.

Leeds United have received a timely boost ahead of their trip to Southampton this week, and one man may make his long-awaited comeback from injury.

What is the most recent Leeds United news?

In the run-up to Leeds United’s journey to St Mary’s Stadium to face Southampton, manager Daniel Farke has provided an update on the status of out-of-favour star Helder Costa, who remains on the books at Elland Road despite much speculation about his future.

According to Leeds Live, Farke stated, “Nothing has changed.” Helder’s wish was that he move. Everything is done professionally. We’re working on a solution, but he’s not one of them. Helder had a fantastic career in English football and is a kind guy, but he will not be engaged.”

“It’s normal that you need time and with the language, he’s fluent but you need to understand every football phrase,” the German coach said of new signing Ilia Gruev‘s next steps at Elland Road. He is a top player who starts for Bulgaria. Ampadu, Grey, and Kamara have all impressed, but this isn’t an emergency situation. This step-by-step approach is much more appealing to me. He is a humble man who is always ready to go. “I am overjoyed.”

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Leeds United loanee Robin Koch spoke about his connection with his parent club despite leaving for Germany in the summer transfer window, saying: “In my three years at Leeds, I have felt very comfortable so far and have developed further as a footballer and as a person.” The club is extremely important to me. But it was time for me to make another sporting move.”

Despite the turmoil at Elland Road in recent months, Leeds are unbeaten in their past six Sky Bet Championship games and have kept four consecutive clear sheets.

What did Phil Hay have to say about Patrick Bamford?

Farke added on Bamford’s availability, telling BBC Sport: “Team training this week was massively beneficial for him, and he’s definitely also a topic for the squad on Saturday.” It’s a lot better now. He’s obviously a topic to travel two weeks back in training.”

On a related subject, the German manager said that Wilfried Gnonto’s ankle operation went off without a hitch and that he will be back in contention after the next international break.

Bamford, who has previously been described as “sensational” by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, has been a big asset for Leeds United despite his recent bad form, collecting 51 goals and 21 assists in 151 games, according to Transfermarkt.

Despite having yet to play for Leeds this season, the Grantham-born ace will provide a boost to Farke, who will want to rely on Bamford’s goalscoring ability in the English second division in the coming months.
