Leeds wing-back Stuart Dallas has vowed to return “stronger than ever” after breaking his leg in defeat to Manchester City on Saturday.
The versatile Northern Ireland international had surgery in London and Leeds have said the 31-year-old will now undergo further tests.
Posting a picture on Twitter from his hospital bed, Dallas said: “Huge thank you for all of the messages I’ve received in the past few days.
“I’ve had amazing support from across the world of football – but particularly from Leeds and Northern Ireland. I’d also like to thank Dr Williams, Dr Sarraf and the medical team at @LUFC.
“The support I’ve received has meant the world to me and my family.
“Now it’s time to focus on my rehab, I will be back from this stronger than ever.
“In the meantime I’ll be supporting my teams every step of the way.”
