Leeds fans react to Luke Ayling injury news

Leeds United have confirmed that defender Luke Ayling has had surgery on his ankle – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are frustrated on Twitter.

The Whites have announced on their official website a squad that will travel to Italy to play Serie A club Cagliari Calcio on Saturday evening in a pre-season game.

The club have explained that Ayling has not travelled with the squad due to his surgery and is going to be out of action “for a period”.

It’s unclear on when the 27-year-old will be in contention for selection, but he’s now missed picking up pre-season fitness and the start of the Championship is just around the corner.

Stuart Dallas and Gaetano Berardi are both capable of playing in the full-back role, but Ayling has shown during his time at Elland Road he can be extremely effective attacking from that position.
