Leeds: Archie Gray out injured for ‘six to eight weeks’

Leeds: Archie Gray out injured for ‘six to eight weeks’ -Leeds United News

Leeds United youngster Archie Gray has suffered an injury blow, with journalist Phil Hay confirming that the teenager will be out of action for ‘six to eight weeks’.

The Lowdown: Gray an exciting prospect

The 16-year-old has emerged as one of the most exciting prospects in the Whites’ academy at the moment, with a big future predicted for him.

Gray is yet to make his senior Leeds debut but his progress is highlighted by the fact that he has already made 19 appearances for the under-21s, despite his tender years. The midfielder has four assists in that time, not looking out of place at all in an older age group.

He has been included in senior matchday squads on occasion and featured for the first-team in pre-season, albeit that he is waiting on a competitive debut.

The Latest: Gray injury news

Taking to Twitter on Friday, Hay relayed the news that Gray is set to be sidelined for effectively the rest of 2022 because of an ankle injury.

Relaying updates from Jesse Marsch’s pre-game press conference ahead of Leeds’ weekend trip to Tottenham, the journalist tweeted:

“Archie Gray has an ankle injury – six to eight weeks out.”

The Verdict: Setback in his progress

This is a clear setback for Gray, who has been progressing so well – Jamie Redknapp has hailed him as ‘tremendous‘ – although the timing of the injury could have been a lot worse.

With the World Cup starting next week, Leeds won’t be in action again until Boxing Day, so the teenager won’t miss any action in that time, should Jesse Marsch have been planning to use him.

Leeds’ under-21s aren’t playing again until January, either, so the teenager won’t miss any matches in Premier League 2 either.

Gray’s main focus should be on recovering as soon as possible and featuring for the under-21s again, hopefully continuing to enjoy a meteoric rise in the process.
