Leeds United forward Bobby Kamwa has had to wait for a scan on an injured shin and foot due to faulty machinery, The Courier reports.
The Lowdown: Scotland loan
Kamwa, described by Leeds Live journalist Joe Donnohue as a player with ‘fast feet’, left the Whites during the January transfer window to join Dunfermline on loan until the end of the season.
Will Marsch keep Leeds up?
Yes, I still have faith!
No, we are finished!
The 21-year-old made two Scottish Championship appearances from the bench but hasn’t been seen in the last three league games due to injury.
His contract at Thorp Arch expires in the summer, and he isn’t having any luck with injury as he looks to play senior first-team football on a regular basis for the first time in his career.
The Latest: Manager reacts
Dunfermline boss John Hughes shared an update on Wednesday, revealing that the striker turned up for a scan in Edinburgh but couldn’t have one due to faulty machinery, labelling it as ‘frustrating’.
“Bobby [Kamwa], unfortunately, went for a scan and the machine was broken when we arrived in Edinburgh.
“You just start laughing at that — an ironic smile. What can you say?
“So we’ll try and get him scanned in the next couple of days.
“That is starting to get a little bit frustrating; not just for me, but for Bobby as well.”
“He’s a young kid that’s come up here and, trust me, from talking to Bobby, he wanted to hit the ground running.
“He knew this was his platform and he just feels that something’s not quite right within that bottom half of the shin, where the top of the foot meets the shin.
“Hopefully, we can get him scanned and give him that assurance that everything’s fine and push him along.
“He’s doing as much as he can, still working hard in the gym, and we’re hoping that we can get him back sooner rather than later.”
The Verdict: Bizarre
The Whites have had no luck with injuries this season, and that has now spread to their loanees, with Kamwa joining Mateusz Bogusz with issues after the attacking midfielder had to undergo surgery on a knee problem earlier this year.
The update on Kamwa, as Hughes mentions, is frustrating, and quite frankly a bizarre one after being sent home without a scan.
Due to his contract situation, he may well be surplus to requirements in Yorkshire ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, but hopefully, he can get back playing before the season is out, possibly attracting interest from clubs over a free transfer in the summer.
