'Little tear' - Leeds loanee confirms two-week absence after injury scans

Leeds United youngster Bryce Hosannah has confirmed that he will be out of action for a couple of weeks after suffering a hamstring setback.

The defender, currently on loan at Bradford City, signed a new contract at Elland Road on Thursday after his impressive start at Valley Parade.

Hosannah picked up his injury mid-way through the Bantams’ 7-0 victory against Tonbridge Angels in the FA Cup last weekend.

Speaking after signing his contract, the 21-year-old admitted that he had also received the results of his latest scan – which turned out to be positive.

“I’ve literally just got the scan results back, it showed a little tear in my hamstring, like a Grade 2 so I’ll probably be out for a couple of weeks,” he told The Yorkshire Evening Post.

This is great news, and hopefully, this will mean that Hosannah will be back out on the pitch impressing in no time.

If it was a complete tear then it would have been months on the sideline, and that will have massively affected his first full season in senior football.

Marcelo Bielsa will be keeping a close eye on all of his younger talents out on loan in the football league at this moment in time.

Hosannah’s contract and injury news comes the day after Cody Drameh endured a nightmare against Blackpool and a reminder that there are two right-backs trying to force their way into the senior side.

The 21-year-old has been superb for Bradford this season.

The defender has the resilience needed to succeed at Elland Road. He described the 1-0 defeat against Barrow this month as one of the toughest games he had played in.

In that clash, he made nine interceptions, three clearances and six recoveries according to WyScout – showing great strength in adversity.

With only two weeks on the sideline, we’re backing Hosannah to bounce straight back.
