Morning Leeds-in for 9 May: Ideguchi is back, but still not in the plans for Leeds

Well, it looks like Yosuke Ideguchi is back from injury, but still not back on the pitch for Leeds.

Ideguchi came on as a substitute for his loan club, Greuther Furth, in their 4-0 loss to Cologne, and while he had knee surgery, he went back to Germany. Greuther Furth have an option to make the loan permanent, and with the season winding down in the 2.Bundesliga, bringing him on could be a sign that they still want to redeem his option and keep him on permanently.

Ideguchi failed to make much of an impact for Cultural Leonesa last season, as the Segunda Division side went down in heartbreaking fashion, and it was obvious that the midfielder had no part to play in Marcelo Bielsa’s future plans at Leeds, so perhaps it’s better that this deal is made permanent.
