Leeds United round-up: Cibicki wanted in the USA, Ayling update and Hernandez backs Halme and co

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Leeds United.

Cibicki stateside

It appears that Pawel Cibicki will not be getting a second chance at Leeds United. The Swedish international has recently finished a loan spell at Norwegian side Molde.

Marcelo Bielsa, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post, has no intention of integrating him back into the Leeds United first-team fold.

They suggest that Molde could be keen on bringing him back to the club for next season. Teams from Major League Soccer are also keen and the 24-year-old is believed to be open to a USA move.

Ayling update

Leeds United’s Head of Medicine and Performance has given a promising update on Luke Ayling. Rob Price suggested that the defender was ahead of schedule after suffering a knee injury against Nottingham Forest last month.

He is already out on the training pitches with a return still looking likely in 2019.

 

He also stated that Gaetano Berardi is recovering well from his own problem, a nasty hamstring injury.

Hernandez backing

Pablo Hernandez has backed Aapo Halme and Kalvin Phillips to cover for Liam Cooper during the captain’s injury absence.

The Scottish defender suffered a knee injury at the weekend and looks set for an extended period on the sidelines.

But speaking to the YEP the Spaniard, who is likely to take over as captain in his absence, suggested Leeds have the players to cover the role.
