Good Morning. It's Friday 5th March, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...
Koch is going to struggle to get in the team
Former Whites shot stopper Paul Robinson believes that German International Robin Koch may find it difficult to displace his team mates between now and the end of the season. Koch has returned to light training following knee surgery last December. The Ex England star (Robbo), winning 41 caps for his Country believes that the partnership between Cooper and Llorente is begining to blossom, which may mean benching the the 24 year old.
Liam Cooper plays and Llorente is really finding his feet so I don’t think they’ll take him out of the team. Robin Koch is going to struggle to get in the team between now and the end of the season.
Saying that, we don’t know how long Kalvin Phillips will be out for and Koch can play in the holding midfield position. If Kalvin Phillips is out or he isn’t 100% fit then Koch could get a game there.
First team players back in action
Expect to see a few familiar faces line up for our U23's at 1pm today against Wolves! Bielsa revealed during his press conference yesterday that undisclosed players, who are on the come back trial, will take part in today's Premier League 2 clash in the Midlands.

Douglas Costa available at cut down price
Italian news media outlet Italian Calciomercato have revealed that Juventus may be willing to part with Douglas Costa at a cut down price. Marcelo Bielsa is a a big fan of the Brazilian winger, and the technical qualities he has. The 30 year old is out of favour under current Manager Andrea Pirlo, but has hardly set the World alight at Bayern Munich. A fee of £9.4m may make it financially worth taking a risk. He cost Juventus 40m euro's just three seasons ago!
However, the news coming out of Italy is that Bielsa is a huge fan of the Juventus winger, who is currently on-loan at Bayern Munich. Leeds' interest could become more serious in the 'coming weeks', the report claims, with Juve willing to sell the 30-year-old for £9.4m.
