BBC journalist: 21y/o Leeds loanee season could be over through injury
Bryce Hosannah’s season could be over after an injury the Leeds United loanee has suffered at Bradford City.
He last played in mid-December for the League Two side and now co-manager Conor Sellars has said that his return date is still unknown.
As relayed by BBC journalist Jamie Raynor, it is said that Bradford “Wouldn’t rule out his season being over”.
He also said that communication between Leeds and Bradford has been “fantastic”.
Hosannah’s injury timescale still remains an unknown, Sellars says they should have further clarity next week. Wouldn’t rule out his season being over at City, but that’s mainly due to the uncertainty. Described lines of communication with Leeds as fantastic. #bcafc #lufc @BBCWYS

Tough season for Hosannah
The 21-year-old right-back has only made eight league appearances through injury this season but signed a new contract with Leeds after joining Bradford.

He suffered a tear in his hamstring back in November and that kept him out for three games.
He suffered a recurrence of this in December and that’s now kept him out for the past three months.
It’s a big blow for Hosannah who started off his loan with Bradford very positively.

And Bradford fans were hugely impressed with what they saw from the 21-year-old in games against Bolton and Mansfield where he was named man-of-the-match.
Another loan is the likely move for him in the summer and he’ll need to write this campaign off and go again.
