Leeds United’s young starlet Zan Benedicic, who joined the club from AC Milan on loan during the summer, was forced to withdraw from the club’s Under 21 clash with Queens Park Rangers earlier today, as reported by BBC Radio Leeds.

The 18 year old attacking midfielder suffered a head injury after the side had already made three substitutions, and had to leave the pitch, leaving Leeds with only ten men for the remainder of the game.
Having been involved with match day squads during the opening weeks of the new season, Benedicic has been less involved since the sacking of Dave Hockaday, although he did make his league debut under caretaker boss Neil Redfearn as a substitute against Bolton Wanderers, a game which Leeds won 1-0.
The Milan loanee made his debut for Leeds against Accrington Stanley in the League Cup, a game which the club won 2-1.
Leeds face Reading in the league on Wednesday, and it remains to be seen if Benedicic will be available for selection.
