Leeds ace Alex Bruce has suffered an injury setback, skysports.com understands.

The Republic of Ireland international, who is actually set to switch allegiances to Northern Ireland, has not played this season.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson was desperate to get the former Ipswich Town man back to bolster his defensive options.

But now just as Bruce was nearing a return to first-team action he has suffered a new injury.

The 26-year-old has damaged his ankle which will delay his return for around three weeks.
