Tyler Denton has returned to Elland Road following half a season playing in League Two for Port Vale.

The 22-year-old has returned for what are described as “family reasons”, so first, we all hope everything is ok for Denton and his family/friends.

The club have specified that he “will link back up with Thomas Christiansen’s first team squad later this week”. He would not be available for the match against Newport County in the FA Cup as he played for Port Vale in the earlier rounds of the competition.

The academy graduate played 15 league games, as well as 4 in cup competition earning decent reviews from their fans.

A large percentage of the Leeds United fanbase have been crying out for the club to sign a left-back so the return of Denton has piqued the interest of fans, with many wondering if he could trouble the first team soon.

While I wouldn’t expect him to get straight into the Leeds side, it does give TC another option at left-back, which could be very important following Luke Ayling’s recent injury which will probably necessitate Gaetano Berardi playing at right-back.
