Leeds United defender Leif Davis has sent a message to reassure fans that his recent surgery was successful and that he is on his way back to recovery.
The 20-year-old has been on the fringes of Marcelo Bielsa’s first-team squad this season, making five appearances for the Whites.
With Barry Douglas, Ezgjan Alioski and Stuart Dallas all being utilised at left-back this season, Davis has struggled for game time over the last few months–not featuring since early November.
It appears he is set for some more time out of the side as, according to Graham Smyth from the Yorkshire Evening Post, the defender has undergone minor knee surgery to clean up cartilage but is expected back within the month.
Davis has taken to Instagram to send a message to fans following the surgery, reassuring them that he the operation went well and he is on his way back.
A product of the Leeds academy, Davis has made 10 appearances in total for the Yorkshire club.
Both the player and Bielsa will no doubt be hoping he is back available as soon as possible.

Davis has shown in glimpses that he has the characteristics to be successful in the position in the future and you’d hope that this won’t hinder that at all.
