Leeds United striker Jean-Kevin Augustin has been seen returning to training via images on the club’s official Twitter account, prompting many fans to react with excitement.
The French forward arrived in Yorkshire in the January transfer window on a loan deal which includes a permanent option. Despite a wave of excitement after his move to Leeds, the striker has failed to adapt to life in the Championship, yet to score in a limited tally of three appearances.
However, despite his lack of minutes and goals, a report emerged last week claiming that he had returned to individual training and had impressed onlooking coaches. Players have since returned to group training sessions at Leeds with an eye on returning to complete the 2019/20 season and seal automatic promotion to the Premier League.
Augustin’s impressions on coaches at Leeds will undoubtedly bring a smile to the face of Marcelo Bielsa, who has relied heavily on former Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford for goals.
Reacting to the images of the brightly-haired Augustin, these Leeds fans are very much looking forward to seeing more of the 22-year-old:
