Leeds United skipper Liam Cooper and midfielder Stuart Dallas have both been ruled out for up to six weeks.

Defender Cooper, 27, had surgery on Wednesday after suffering a knee injury in Saturday's win at Sheffield United.

Northern Ireland international Dallas, also 27, fractured his foot in the same game at Bramall Lane.

Cooper tweeted: "Successful op, now to get back on the mend. Could have been a lot worse. Big thanks to our medical staff for the swift process."
