Leeds: Ian Poveda makes trip to Blackburn Rovers

Leeds: Ian Poveda makes trip to Blackburn Rovers -Leeds United News

Leeds United winger Ian Poveda was at Ewood Park on Saturday to watch Blackburn Rovers.

The Lowdown: Poveda’s absence

Poveda signed for Rovers over the summer on a season-long loan deal but has been out of action since November after requiring ankle surgery.

The 22-year-old, who Noel Whelan labelled as ‘exciting’, made just eight appearances for Tony Mowbray’s side, scoring once and providing two assists.

Blackburn are still in with a chance of securing a playoff spot in the second tier, and Poveda was present to watch the club in action on Saturday afternoon.

The Latest: Social media post

Poveda shared a video on his Instagram story on Saturday afternoon in the stands at Ewood Park for Blackburn’s 1-1 draw with Blackpool.

He also posted a picture of himself at Thorp Arch on Friday, revealing he is ‘getting real close’ to a return.

The Verdict: Return imminent?

It remains to be seen if Poveda will return to Rovers before the end of the season, with both clubs in contact in recent weeks regarding the winger’s situation.

However, following his trip to watch Blackburn in action yesterday, it looks as if he may well be linking up with them for the final games of the season.

Leeds will want to ensure he is back to full fitness before sending him back to Ewood Park, though, so it could be one to keep an eye on over the next week or two.
