Ramon Nunez: Stretchered off during Leeds' development squad's 3-1 win over Wigan
Leeds United look unlikely to get Ramon Nunez off their books any time soon after he suffered a seemingly serious injury.
The Honduras international was at the end of last season deemed surplus to requirements by boss Neil Warnock and placed on the transfer list.
However, he remains at Elland Road after failing to attract any interest during the summer transfer window.
And after being stretchered off during Leeds' development squad's 3-1 win over their Wigan counterparts with a cruciate ligament injury, an exit is increasingly unlikely.
Under 21s coach Neil Redfearn told Leeds' official website: "It didn't look good and when a player goes down like that your initial reaction is that it could be long-term.
"If that's the case, it's a shame for him but he will be assessed as to what the extent is before we find out."
