Former Leeds United wide man Aidy White is on trial with Stuart McCall’s League One side Scunthorpe United, according to Iron Bru.
White came through the ranks at Elland Road in 2008 after spending six seasons in their youth system. The left sided player made 106 appearances for the Whites, the bulk of which came between 2011 and 2013. He spent time on loan with Oldham and Sheffield United before being sold to Rotherham.
He’s been without a club since leaving Barnsley at the end of the 2015/16 season and has suffered injury problems which seem to have ended his career. However, he’s now back in the game and looking for a deal with the McCall’s side, who have turned their fortunes around after a horrible start under Nick Daws.
White played in a 5-1 reserves defeat against Middlesbrough yesterday and will now be forcing McCall to think long and hard about a possible deal.
The Iron are up to 16th in the table, but are only four points above the drop zone in a tightly-packed relegation battle.
It looked as though the 27-year-old was out of the game for good after his Barnsley spell ended, but his emergence as a possible signing for Scunthorpe shows a lot about his character.
After two and a half seasons out of the game he’s battled back to prove his worth.
That sort of determination and doggedness will surely impress the manager, but does he still have that turn of pace he once possessed? Or have his injury problems taken away his one main attribute?
