Leeds United defender Tom Lees will undergo surgery this summer to repair damage to his nose which he has repeatedly broken this season.
The 21-year-old, who has made 44 appearances for the whites during his breakthrough season, suffered another break during last weekend’s draw at Cardiff.
“It was pretty sore and numb afterwards and I couldn’t feel it,” said Lees.
“But I’m getting used to it now. It was the fourth time I’ve done it since January now so it’s broken and needs putting back in place.”
