Raphinha is the Whites' top scorer this season, with only nine players scoring more times than the 25-year-old in the top flight this term.

The forward has also laid on three assists this campaign, including a late one for Joe Gelhardt as Leeds dramatically defeated Norwich City last month to bolster their survival hopes.
