Head coach pleased with midfielder's debut...
Neil Redfearn felt debutant Granddi Ngoyi "looked the part" after making his first United appearance against Norwich on Tuesday night.
Ngoyi, a January loan signing from Palermo, started in midfield in place of Kalvin Phillips and completed the full 90 minutes of the 2-0 loss at Elland Road.
The 26-year-old had endured a frustrating start to his career in Leeds, with injury lay-offs delaying his first appearance for almost three months.
Ngoyi was unable to prevent Norwich from running out 2-0 winners thanks to second-half goals from Jonny Howson and Graham Dorrans, but Redfearn was encouraged by the Frenchman’s debut.
"I thought he played well, Granddi," said the head coach.
"I thought he broke stuff up and gave us some presence. It made it better for Murphy and Mo in there because they had the assurance of a sitting midfield player.
"That’s his role.
"I think we’ve missed Lewis Cook, but on Tuesday night we looked better for having somebody who had that capability to defend in there.
"I thought the midfield did well. I thought Ngoyi looked the part, he broke play up.
"I thought he picked Hoolahan up and Hoolahan wasn’t in it much in the first half."
