A round-up of the latest Leeds United news on Thursday, December 1.
Leeds United make decision on Charlie Cresswell loan
Leeds United will not be recalling young defender Charlie Cresswell in January, according to Football Insider. The centre-half, who is currently on loan with Millwall in the Championship, has bounced back well following a rough patch at the Den.
Despite scoring a number of goals for the club, Cresswell was left on the bench and then left out of the squad. However, the 20-year-old was then named in the Sky Bet Championship Team of The Month for November.
The Whites loanee kept two clean sheets out of a possible three, picking up five points available. There had been murmurings Leeds may recall the defender for additional cover at Elland Road, but the report claims Jesse Marsch will let the youngster see out his loan.
Jesse Marsch's message to Leeds United's Brenden Aaronson over limited World Cup role for USA
Jesse Marsch has backed Leeds United midfielder Brenden Aaronson to be 'ready' for whatever role he is handed for the United States at the 2022 World Cup.
Aaronson is yet to start for the USMNT at the finals in Qatar, and has come off the bench in all three group games as his side progressed to the Round of 16.
USA are undefeated at the tournament, drawing against Wales and England respectively, before securing progression to the knockout stages courtesy of a 1-0 win over Iran on Tuesday.
Leeds United closely monitoring USA medical reports with injury impact for Brenden Aaronson
Eyes at Leeds United will be on USA’s injury updates in the coming days as Brenden Aaronson’s 2022 World Cup threatens to ignite. The 22-year-old, so instrumental for the Whites this term, is yet to start for his country in Qatar.
Aaronson has been restricted to 25, 14 and 45-minute outings for Gregg Berhalter’s side in three group games which have catapulted USA into the second round. Netherlands will face the Americans on Saturday and Aaronson has a real chance of making his full debut in the planet’s biggest football competition.
Jesse Marsch, who was vocal in his support for Tyler Adams and Aaronson this week, and Leeds will be paying special attention because of the injuries suffered on Tuesday night. Christian Pulisic and Josh Sargent were each removed from the Iran match with issues.
