Leeds Striker Set for Surgery

Leeds Striker Set for Surgery

Leeds United striker Tore-Andre Flo is set to undergo surgery today in order to try and sort out a persistent foot injury.

The ex-Chelsea and Rangers striker hasn’t been able to fully shake off the effects of the fracture he picked up on his Leeds United debut, a game in which he scored his first goal. Despite making a surprise return to 1st team action as a second half substitute in Leeds’ 1-0 victory over Yeovil, it is now clear that he will require a further operation in order to safeguard his football future in the longer term.

Speaking to Leedsunited.com Dennis Wise said: 'We'll be patient with him and he's got to be patient too,'

'If he's back in six or eight weeks that's fine. He came off the bench last week, and he is capable of making an impact.

'It's been a difficult time for him, but hopefully this will help now. He was having the operation today and we'll take things from here.'


With Leon Constantine still out with an ankle injury, Wise may look to extend the loan period of forwards Mark De Vries and Wayne Andrews, with the former already making an impact in scoring the late winner last weekend against Yeovil.
