Augustin joined Leeds on Monday from Red Bull Leipzig and travelled with the squad for Tuesday night's hosting of Millwall before watching the game from the stands having not trained with his new team-mates.

Whites head coach Marcelo Bielsa has since stressed it will take time for the 22-year-old to be integrated into the group and the forward is not on the bench for Saturday's clash against the Latics.

There is just the one change on the bench with Gaetano Berardi back from a calf injury and replacing Pascal Struijk.
