Ideguchi joined the Whites in January from J. League side Gamba Osaka and immediately made the switch to Cultural Leonesa on a six month loan deal in an attempt to adjust to life in Europe.

Following his return to Leeds Marcelo Bielsa handed the 22-year-old his chance in pre-season as he made his first start for the club against York City but he failed to break into the Argentine's final first-team squad at Elland Road with the 63-year-old stating he wasn't an option he would consider this season.

Ideguchi will now prepare to face Heidenheim before taking on Hamburg and former Whites loanee Pierre-Michel Lasogga who also had a Saturday to remember as he notched a nine minute hat-trick in a 3-2 victory to take his tally to five goals in just four games.
