O’Halloran Returns to Villa

Irish international Stephen O’Halloran will return to Villa Park on the news that he has suffered a cruciate ligament injury.

The 20-year old moved to Elland Road on a short term deal last week on the advice of assistant boss, and the players former Ireland manager Steve Staunton, however was injured in the warm-up before Leeds’ League One fixture against Swindon Town.

Speaking to LUTV the youngster said:

“Unfortunately, it's a bad one. It's my cruciate ligaments. I haven't got the full details as yet, so we'll wait and see what happens over the next few weeks. Unfortunately, it means it's loan over for me.

“I was looking forward to playing here, but I'm not going to be all negative about things, you never know what might happen in the future.

“I'd like to thank everyone here, particularly the physios.”

Leeds boss Gary McAllister was similarly disappointed at the news:

“It's disappointing for Stephen. He was buzzing when he came here and was really looking forward to playing.

“We've all got our fingers crossed for him here that he makes a speedy recovery and I think I can speak on behalf of everyone when I wish him all the best from Leeds United.”

Vital Leeds wishes Stephen a speedy recovery, and with left-back seemingly a problem position for Leeds, perhaps such a recovery that means that a talented young player may return to us someday soon!
