Leeds United round-up: Cooper boost, Ekuban's 'attitude' and Clemente linked
Leeds United have been handed a big boost as Liam Cooper returns to training. The club posted a video of Cooper in action on their official twitter acount earlier today.
The captain suffered a knee injury against Sheffield United earlier this month which required surgery.
Initially ruled out until 2019, it is not known if this development suggests Cooper could be back before the end of the month.
Sport Witness have relayed reports from Sozcu in Turkey surrounding the Leeds striker Caleb Ekuban. The frontman is currently on loan at Trabzonspor and has recently found some form for the Turkish side.
The report sees the club president praise the attitude of Ekuban.
The Turkish side are reportedly keen on making his move permanent, but not at the €1 million (£900,000) previously agreed.
Italian teenager linked
Leeds United are believed to be keen on the signature of talented Italian youngster Francesco Paolo Clemente. TuttoMercatoWeb is reporting that the Foggia striker is a target for both Leeds and Fulham.
The 16-year-old forward recently scored a brace against Roma in an under-16s clash and Leeds reportedly had scouts present at that game.
He would, seemingly, head straight into the Leeds development set-up.
