Leeds United made a number of youth signings this season, and during the January transfer window, one of the first players to be signed up was young Finnish defender Aapo Halme from HJK Helsinki.

Since signing for the club, however, the player has largely been absent. Halme said today that he’s been out for the past two months with a foot injury that was sustained right after joining up with the Whites. He’s been doing gym work, and he’s started to work out with the development team.

On to the links.
