Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will want to put this season firmly behind them as the bad news continues to mount for the Yorkshire giants.
The Whites looked good to be promoted at the start of the season with an impressive run of results – however, they are now destined for a mid-table finish after a disastrous spell during the middle and end of the campaign, which saw Thomas Christiansen sacked and replaced by Paul Heckingbottom.
The Elland Road outfit have been blighted by a number of issues, which has seen discipline in the side lacking with suspensions being all too often for their players, whilst a number of injuries have played a huge factor in their shortcomings.
And Leeds Live are now reporting that manager Heckingbottom has suggested that another player is set for time on the sidelines and is unlikely to play again this season, with Stuart Dallas struggling with a tight hamstring in what has been a hugely disappointing campaign for himself.
He said: ‘He was playing with it. A little hamstring problem. We ended up having to scan it and there was some damage in there. A hamstring tear.’
And when asked whether his season was over, he said: ‘Yes, because it was getting worse. He’ll be no good.’
And these comments are sure to spell even more bad news for our already despondent Leeds fans in the Tavern, who have endured a testing time recently what with their team mustering just three Championship victories since the turn of the year.
Landlord’s Verdict: The Leeds fans in the Tavern will want to forget about their season quickly, and will be expecting the club to be extremely active in the transfer market this summer to ensure a repeat does not happen.
The locals will be specifically be disappointed for Dallas as he looks to recover from yet another problem that has affected his time at Elland Road.
