Bradford manager Mark Trueman is keen to get Bryce Hosannah back on loan in summer

Bryce Hosannah recently returned to Leeds United from a loan spell at Bradford but Bantams boss Mark Trueman is keen to get him back.

Hosannah made 11 appearances at Bradford before injury forced a return to Thorp Arch for the Under-23s star.

Trueman never got to manage Hosannah as he took charge in February along with Conor Sellars as the 21-year-old was already injured – but he is open to signing the youngster again in the summer.

As quoted by The Telegraph & Argus, he said, “We want to bring the best players possible to the club, whether that’s loans or signings in the summer window.

“If Bryce is a player that is available, there is always potential that he could return.”

Other youngsters to depart?

Leeds’ senior team have been impressive this season but the U23s have blown away their opponents for most of the season.

The likes of Joe Gelhardt, Sam Greenwood and Crysencio Summerville have starred and they all have bright futures ahead of them.

Big decisions will need to be made in the summer regarding which U23s players will step up to the first-team, who will move out on loan and who will remain in the U23s.

A number of youngsters have joined EFL sides this year with Alfie McCalmont and Robbie Gotts impressing in League Two in recent weeks.

Gelhardt has Championship experience from his time at Wigan and a loan move could benefit his development.

Bielsa will ultimately have the final say and may prefer to keep our biggest prospects at the club and gradually build up their game time, just as he has done with Jamie Shackleton and Leif Davis.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites could hit the jackpot in £1m move for star with frightening potential.
