Leeds striker Patrick Bamford will be sidelined for four months due to knee ligament damage, the club have announced.

Bamford, 25, who signed from Middlesbrough in a deal worth up to £10million in July, sustained posterior cruciate ligament damage during an under-23s' game last Friday.

"This is clearly disappointing news for Patrick and for everyone at Leeds United," Leeds director of football Victor Orta told the club's official website.

"Patrick has settled in well, quickly becoming an important player for Marcelo Bielsa and a popular part of the group.

"We have an excellent medical team at the club and Patrick is in the best possible hands, he will be back available to us during an important part of the season and he will still play a key role in our campaign."

Manchester United have recalled left-back Cameron Borthwick-Jackson from his loan at Leeds, the Championship club have announced.

The 23-year-old was due to spend the whole season at Elland Road after switching from Old Trafford last summer but played in just six games.

Only one of Borthwick-Jackson's appearances came in the Championship and the arrangement has now been cancelled.

A Leeds statement read: "We would like to thank Cameron for his efforts during his time at the club."
