LUFC Grayson - Rogers needs time in training
Leeds United boss Simon Grayson says that new signing Robbie Rogers is doubtful for the game with Birmingham City on Tuesday night after a busy week.
Rogers has finally received international clearance and a visa this week, with him returning home to America to sort out the relevant paperwork.
Grayson believes with Rogers being away that he will be short of fitness and will need to do some time to get up to match fitness.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, "He has been away for the last four days in America getting his green card and he comes back Friday or Saturday, so he has lost a few days training.
"He might be in or around the squad, we will have to wait and see but he needs to do a little bit of work on the training ground first."
The American international joined Leeds last week on an eighteen-month contract with Leeds taking the option of a further year.
The 24-year-old has spent the last four years with MLS side Columbus Crew where he made over 100 appearances. Rogers made 30 appearances last season, with the regular league season finishing in October.
The winger has been with Leeds since before Christmas, enjoying a successful trial at Thorp Arch.
