Report reveals Leeds powerhouse set for imminent extended medical attention after blow

Leeds United striker Caleb Ekuban is set to undergo yet more scans on the injury suffered against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday within the next 24 hours, according to a report.

The Yorkshire Evening Post claim that the former Chievo Verona forward, who arrived at Elland Road over the summer, has still not found out what the problem he has suffered is, and that he is set for an extended spell of medial attention to deduce the issue.

The 23-year-old powerhouse of a striker was forced off in the first half of Leeds’ 3-1 win at Loftus Road over the weekend, and was seen after the match wearing a protective boot and using crutches, with manager Thomas Christiansen revealed to have serious concerns that it is a repetition of the broken foot suffered earlier in the season.

Ekuban was ruled out of action for three months after his first ever league appearance, his second outing in total, for Leeds, with the injury requiring surgery, and fans were left fuming on Saturday after seeing the Ghanaian forward limp out of the clash against QPR.

He has managed to make just seven appearances across all competitions since arriving from Italy, with the only goal under his belt so far the one he netted against Port Vale on his debut for the Whites.
