Leeds: Whites suffer another injury setback

Daniel Farke may suffer a setback as a result of this.

Leeds United now have a number of injured players, and there may be a new worry at Elland Road, according to an update from reputable journalist Phil Hay.

Who is out for Leeds?
The Whites have made a sluggish start to their Championship campaign, despite being one of the favourites to gain promotion to the Premier League, with plenty of quality in their roster.

Daniel Farke‘s side could only draw 0-0 at home to local rivals Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday afternoon, earning the Owls their first point of the season in the process. It means that Leeds have only picked up six points from their first five league games of 2023/24, winning only once, which is an unquestionably dismal return.

While some of the performances have been poor, the Whites do have the excuse of multiple players being sidelined due to injuries at the time. Patrick Bamford is one of them, as he continues to suffer with fitness issues, while Sam Byram and Dan James are also out, as are Liam Cooper and Stuart Dallas.

Following a major claim from a reputable source, a new player appears to have picked up a new ailment.

Is Archie Grey of Leeds injured?

Hay confirmed to X that Archie Grey will not be joining England’s Under-19s on international duty owing to a “minor fitness concern.”

Archie Grey is not leaving England’s U19s.” Leeds United have withdrawn him from the squad due to a minor fitness issue. Tyring is trying to manage his load and stay fit for Millwall. This season, I’ve appeared in every game.”

Grey, who was labelled “sensational” against Ipswich Town recently, is a tremendously exciting talent at Leeds who has already established himself as a regular at the age of 17, having started five Championship games this season. During that time, he has averaged 1.4 tackles per game and a 93.3% pass completion rate in two EFL Cup games, making his presence felt in the middle of the park.

This is a concerning development for the Whites, with the hope that the club is simply being cautious, not wanting him to worsen a minor injury while on international service. If he can recover during the forthcoming domestic break, he should be eligible for his team’s next league game, which is away to Millwall on September 17th.

Former Liverpool midfielder and current Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp praised Grey as a player, saying of him:

Archie Grey, 15, has travelled with the Leeds squad today.” He’s going to be a fantastic young player, coming from the famed Grey family.”

Being a regular player at the age of 17 speaks volumes about the teenager’s potential as a footballer, with a total of 18 caps for England at youth team level highlighting his pedigree and ceiling, having won one, eight, and nine caps for the Three Lions’ Under-15s, Under-16s, and Under-18s, respectively.

It would be another setback to have him miss time, but Hay’s report suggests that the ailment isn’t too significant.
