Sam Byram is on the verge of a first-team comeback for Leeds United – but the club look likely to delay his return until after Saturday’s clash with Bolton Wanderers.

Manager Brian McDermott said Byram was “close” to putting himself in contention following a long fight with a hip injury but he is due to be given a final run-out with United’s Under-21 squad on Monday.

The teenage right-back completed his first 90-minute appearance since April during a friendly against Sunderland at Thorp Arch this week and he will feature again in a development-league match against Birmingham City.
