Leeds hope star man can make return from injury against Derby - reliable journalist

By Harvey Byrne

Leeds are hoping that star full-back Charlie Taylor can return from injury to face Derby in 11 days time, according to a reliable journalist.

Yorkshire Evening Post chief football writer Phil Hay has posted on his personal Twitter account that the club are hoping Taylor will be ready for their next league fixture.

There has been much speculation about the future of the Leeds 23-year-old with Premier League clubs interested in acquiring services.

However, Hay also reported on his account that Garry Monk made it clear that none of his players would be leaving the club in the winter window.

Taylor broke through the academy at Leeds, making his debut for the club at the age of 17 in 2011.

But, with his contract set to run out in the summer and no signs of a renewal as of yet his future at the club had appeared to be in doubt.

However, Monk will be keen to keep hold of all of his players with his side sat in fifth in the Championship and Taylor will be one he will certainly want to keep.

The full-back has played in 25 fixtures for his side in all competitions this campaign with a return of three assists.

The club will now be keen to tie him down to a new long-term deal to avoid losing him on a free in the summer.
