The 28-year-old has been sidelined in recent months following ankle surgery in the summer and is yet to make a first team appearance this season.

Ayling made his comeback on Monday evening for Carlos Corberan's Under-23s during the 6-0 victory over Watford at Elland Road.

The right-back once again featured for the development side on Friday as they fell to a 2-1 defeat to Hull City at the KCOM stadium.

Ayling completed 70 minutes of the fixture before being replaced by Kun Temenuzhkov in the closing stages.
