Leeds United could turn to sensation Alfie Mccalmont to address their first-team left-back woes this season.

The Whites ended the summer without signing a left-back and Leif Davis, who many viewed as the backup to Junior Firpo, was allowed to leave permanently.

Firpo and makeshift left-back Stuart Dallas have both been injured and thus, have not played a single minute this term.

This has seen Jesse Marsch turn to Pascal Struijk to play in an unfamiliar left-back role which he has done fairly well in.

However, there are no like-for-like backups on the bench in case something happens to him and this could see Mccalmont step up to the plate.

According to LeedsLive, the central midfielder was asked to play there by Michael Skubala in a Premier League 2 game.

Much like the first team, the Leeds reserves also had an issue in that area of the pitch and the 22-year-old put in a decent performance there.

He is at that age where he probably would not want to be defined by a single role and if the chance arises of him breaking into the first-team as a left-back, he may look to make that his primary position.

The fact that he plays in midfield gives Marsch another versatile player to consider and a Premier League debut may not be too far away for him.

He’s already been handed his EFL Cup debut by Marcelo Bielsa three years ago and now is at an age where he would like to be in contention for the first team.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites have reached an agreement to sign a left-back, according to his agent.
