Leeds defender Bryce Hosannah will be eyeing right-back spot after injury return
Leeds United defender Bryce Hosannah has returned from an injury lay-off.
On the club’s official Twitter page, Leeds confirmed that Hosannah was back from injury as he replaced Jack Harrison in an under-23 fixture.
Now, the young right-back will be hoping to impress for the academy side and earn a promotion to the senior squad.
The blueprint is there for Hosannah, especially with an injury crisis at the back.
Marcelo Bielsa has shown that if you are good enough, you are old enough and he has given many chances to young players this season.
In the current first-team picture, you have Aapo Halme, Jack Clarke, Jamie Shackleton, Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Leif Davis and Tyler Roberts.

Hosannah will be aiming to be the next youngster to break into the first-team after returning from injury.
Bielsa is currently forced into playing natural central midfielder Shackleton, 19, in the right-back position.
With Luke Ayling, Gaetano Berardi and Stuart Dallas all injured, this slot is up for grabs if Hosannah impresses.
The 19-year-old made his comeback on the wing but will be eager to start some games at right-back and catch Bielsa’s eye.
Leeds fans rate the former Crystal Palace youngster highly and he could well be the next wonder-kid to make their Elland Road breakthrough under Bielsa.
