Leeds United teenager Harvey Sutcliffe suffered a knee injury in the U21s’ 1-0 win over Sunderland on Monday.
The Lowdown: Pro deal
He appears to be getting better and better, with Leeds journalist Joe Donnohue saying Sutcliffe had ‘one of his best displays’ against Sunderland on Monday coming up against Manchester United loanee Amad Diallo, but he appears to have suffered an injury setback.
The Latest: Crutches and knee brace
Donnohue took to Twitter on Tuesday, sharing his report from Leeds’ 1-0 win against Sunderland.
He said that Sutcliffe left the stadium ‘on crutches’, adding in a story for The Yorkshire Evening Post that the youngster was also in a knee brace as a precaution, with further tests scheduled to determine the severity of the injury.
The Verdict: Not good
The U21s have been in fine form this season under Michael Skubala and are top of the Premier League 2 Division 2, with Sutcliffe playing his part at the back.
He kept Diallo, who cost Manchester United £37m, quiet earlier in the week and appears to be improving with every performance.
Therefore, along with Leeds’ left-back shortages, it is a shame to see that the youngster appears to have suffered a nasty injury, with opportunities in the first-team a real possibility in the not too distant future given the issues with the likes of Junior Firpo and Stuart Dallas.
Hopefully, he’ll make a full and swift recovery.
