Leeds: Ian Poveda makes trip to Blackburn Rovers

Leeds United winger Ian Poveda was at Ewood Park on Saturday to watch Blackburn Rovers.

The truths: the absence of Poveda

Poveda signed for Rovers over the summer on a season-long loan deal but has been out of action since November after undergoing ankle surgery.

The 22-year-old, whom Noel Whelan called “thrilling”, made just eight appearances for Tony Mowbray’s side, scoring once and providing two assists.

Blackburn still have a chance of securing a second-tier playoff spot, and Poveda was on hand to watch the club in action on Saturday afternoon.

Latest: social media post

Poveda shared a video to his Instagram Story on Saturday afternoon from the stands at Ewood Park for Blackburn’s 1-1 draw with Blackpool.

He also posted a photo of himself at Thorp Arch on Friday, revealing he’s “really getting closer” to a comeback.

Verdict: imminent return?

It remains to be seen whether Poveda will return to Rovers before the end of the season, with the two clubs having been in contact in recent weeks over the winger’s situation.

However, after his trip to watch Blackburn in action yesterday, it looks like he might just be connecting with them for the final games of the season.

Leeds will want to make sure he’s back to full fitness before sending him back to Ewood Park, so he could be one to watch over the next week or two.
