Leeds United defender Robin Koch appears to be closing in on his return to training after his knee surgery last year.
The German international has been missing since the 3-1 defeat against Chelsea when he further aggravated a problem he has had all season.
Marcelo Bielsa has had limited options in defence since promotion to the Premier League, with Diego Llorente also struggling.
Koch took to his personal Twitter account on Thursday, captioning a picture of him in the Thorp Arch gym, “Loading.”
The 24-year-old was initially given a comeback date of the end of this month, possibly going into March with some under-23s minutes.
Diego Llorente was also pictured in a recent training video, meaning Leeds could get two for the price of one in terms of major boosts this month.
Koch impressed in the reverse fixture against tomorrow’s opponents’ Wolves, making five interceptions, although the trip to Molineux will come far too early.
The more options Leeds and Bielsa have, the better and it appears as though we are closing in on a full squad for the final months of the season.
Many Leeds fans have reacted to the Twitter post shared by Koch on Thursday, and it is safe to say that they were delighted.
The majority have claimed that it is only a matter of time before the German enforcer returns to action in the Premier League.
