Leeds United signed Tottenham Hotspur defender Djed Spence on loan this summer and it’s about time he walks into their playing eleven.

Whites defender Luke Ayling has started the campaign as the first-choice right-back for Daniel Farke this season.

However, the English full-back has struggled, despite it being a division lower than what he’s been used to for the past three seasons.

The Second Tier, a reliable source for all things Championship on Twitter, shared states of players being dribbled past the most this term.

They wrote, “The players who have been dribbled past the most in the Championship:

1️⃣ Luke Ayling – 13
2️⃣ Callum Paterson – 11
➡️ Josh Eccles – 11
4️⃣ Juan Delgado – 10
➡️ Sam Morsy – 10
6️⃣ Imran Louza – 9″

These numbers are disappointing and Farke needs to make the big decisions and drop arguably the most popular player in the Leeds dressing room.

Spence came off the bench against Sheffield Wednesday and showed just how good he is at winning the ball back and going forward.

He’s already proven himself to be a quality defender in the Championship and there’s a reason the Whites sanctioned a move for him this summer.

Cody Drameh has been loaned out so Spence is next in line for Leeds and it’ll come as a shock if Farke doesn’t name him in the eleven v Millwall post the international break.
