Bamford, who joined from Middlesbrough in the summer, did not start in any of Leeds' opening six Championship fixtures, leaving him slightly short of match fitness.

This led to the 25-year-old being included in the Whites' U23s squad against Bristol City last week but the decision has come back to haunt Marcelo Bielsa's side who will now be without the striker until the new year.

Hundreds of Leeds fans have reacted to the news on social media, with some calling for their young guns to be given a chance, in particular, Jack Clarke.
