Leeds United boss Simon Grayson is not putting a timescale on the return to action of striker Billy Paynter.
Paynter joined in the summer from Swindon Town after scoring 29 goals in League One last season.
He has been sidelined since taking a kick to his shin in the pre season game at MKF Kosice, a game in which he scored his first goal for the club.
The 26 year old is still wearing a protective boot and Grayson is monitoring his progress on a day-by-day basis. Speaking on the official website, Grayson said, ‘He’s still got his boot on and it’s a slow process but we keep analysing him on a daily basis.
‘Once he’s out of the boot we can try and get him fit as quickly as possible.’
With Jermaine Beckford departing the club in the summer, Leeds fans will be hoping to see Paynter make a speedy recovery, in what is a busy first few month`s of the season.
