Long-term Leeds absentee set to return to training on Tuesday - reliable journalist
By Harvey Byrne
Long-term Leeds absentee Charlie Taylor is “pencilled in” to resume training on Tuesday, according to a reliable journalist.
The 23-year-old full-back has not started for the Yorkshire giants since leaving the field with an injury against Brentford in the middle of December.
It was initially assumed that it was just a minor setback, but he has been absent from Garry Monk’s side’s last 11 matches in the league.
The manager shared that Taylor was set to return to training this week in his pre-match Ipswich press conference and now, Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Lee Sobot shared on his personal Twitter account that the Whites youth graduate is scheduled to make his return on Tuesday.

With 13 matches left to play for Leeds they have set themselves up in a good position in fifth place and seven points clear of seventh with Sheffield Wednesday coming up next on Saturday.
