Leeds United boss Bielsa provides injury update on Nketiah

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has given the latest on Eddie Nketiah’s injury, affirming he will begin full training next week.

The 20-year-old, on loan from Arsenal, suffered an abdominal problem prior to a game against Queens Park Rangers on November 2 in which he was supposed to make his first Championship start this season.

He has been on the sidelines since with no certainty on his return, but Bielsa has given the first positive update.
