We’re delighted to welcome injury expert Dr Rajpal Brar as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the injury situation at Leeds United...

Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford appears to have suffered a Grade 2 hamstring tear which has kept him out of action, according to Dr Rajpal Brar.

The Englishman is yet to feature this season for the Whites and is expected to return right after the international break.

The injury expert claims that his fitness levels appear to be at an all-time low given the constant setbacks he’s faced over the past few years.

Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Brar, a specialist in Physical Therapy and Sports Scientist, said about Bamford, “Bamford’s injury sounds like a grade 2 hamstring based on the aim to return after the international break.

The tough part for Bamford will be this is yet another injury and his fitness levels continue to decline as he’s unable to play in games.

His fitness seems to be at an all-time low.”

Daniel Farke walked into the club this summer and knew that it was paramount to bring in a new striker through the door.

He turned to Swansea and roped in Joel Piroe who appears to have hit the ground running at Elland Road.

Bamford, 29, is not getting any younger, so it remains to be seen what Leeds’ plan with him is until he sees out his contract at the club.

As things stand, he’s not yet ready to break into the first team and may need to play a few reserve games before he can be reintroduced.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites tabled multiple enquiries to sign a multi-million international winger ahead of the transfer deadline.
