David Norris has been ruled out for four weeks, according to Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Norris, one of several former Portsmouth players brought in by Neil Warnock this summer has started every league game so far this season. The midfielder also captained the side for the League Cup victory against Shrewsbury Town, a match in which he scored his first and only goal to date.

The news will be a blow to Neil Warnock who has raised concerns about the depth of his squad, and has already lost Paul Green for around two months following a knee injury sustained during Leeds’ opening day victory over Wolves.

It’s unclear as to whether Leeds United will enter the loan market for midfield cover. Much of that will depend on the finances available to Neil Warnock who recently struggled to secure a reported £5,000 a week for the signing of El Hadji Diouf.
