Young Leeds United striker Lewis Walters is facing up to three months on the sidelines after scans revealed he needs surgery on his cartilage injury.

Walters was sent for scans after being taken off in the first half of the game at Mansfield Town last week and the club were hoping that he would not require surgery but he will have to undergo surgery on his knee cartilage injury.

It is a blow for the 19-year-old who had impressed in the early pre-season games as he looked to make his breakthrough into the first team this season.

The Leeds academy product was an unused substitute on two occasions last season in his first year as a professional at Elland Road.
