Young Leeds United striker Sam Greenwood has posted a positive fitness update on his Instagram page on Wednesday.
Just three days ago, Greenwood posted an update of himself on the physio table with the message, “Soon back”.
It looks like that could be sooner than expected as his latest message suggests a return to training.
He posted a picture of him in his boots with the message “Day by day”.
That echoes the message put out by Rodrigo on Tuesday, with the big-money star returning to training.
Meanwhile, Ian Poveda was also spotted back in action at Thorp Arch.
Back for Friday?
Leeds fans have very high hopes for the former Arsenal striker.
He made his senior debut in the FA Cup against Crawley and while that didn’t go exactly according to plan, he’s been banging the goals in for the Under-23s.
Greenwood missed the last Under-23s game on Monday when Leeds beat Reading 3-0, and he’s had to watch while Joe Gelhardt has been on the bench for the last two Premier League games.
However, we’re expecting to see Greenwood make the first-team squad for the Premier League before too long. Possibly as soon as Leeds are mathematically safe from the drop.
Greenwood could now be back in contention for the Under-23s game on Friday against Norwich City at the Lotus Training Ground.
With the first-team playing the same day, it will be a side shorn of senior stars, and will likely be missing Joe Gelhardt again.
