Leeds wideman Aidy White could be out for the rest of the season - but is set to be rewarded with a new contract at the club.
The 20-year-old youth team product was forced off just before half-time in Saturday's home defeat to Watford and left Elland Road on crutches.
But Leeds fans are unlikely to have seen the last of White. After rejecting a contract offer from the club in December, new boss Neil Warnock is confident the youngster will be signing a new deal shortly.
Warnock said: "We're finalising a contract offer that we should be getting to him in seven days I think."
White had previously been utilised at left-back before Warnock decided to play the Republic of Ireland Under-21 international further forward.
But Leeds will have to find a new solution on the left flank with White set to miss the remainder of the campaign.
Warnock added: "There's no break in it, that's the good thing, but I'd be very surprised if he plays again this season and it's a shame because he's done very well."
