RODOLPH Austin could hand Leeds United a major boost by recovering from injury in time to compensate for Michael Tonge’s return to Stoke City.

United manager Neil Warnock revealed today that Austin had an “outside chance” of being available for the club’s schedule of games over Christmas and new year – a spell which on-loan midfielder Tonge will be forced to miss.

Tonge’s three-month loan from Stoke is due to end on December 22, the day of United’s Championship game against Middlesbrough, and Warnock will be unable to re-sign the midfielder until FIFA’s transfer window opens on January 1.
