LEEDS United have taken Frickley Athletic midfielder Indy Aujla on a two-week trial.

The 24-year-old midfielder has been attracting the interest of scouts from the Championship club thanks to his performances for the Evo-Stik Premier Division Blues this season.

His reward is the chance to try and impress Neil Redfearn, the Whites’ development squad coach, and manager Neil Warnock during a two-week trial at the club’s Thorp Arch base.

Aujla arrived at Westfield Lane from Hinckley United over the summer and has been a key cog in Karl Rose’s team so far this season.

He came through the Bradford City youth set-up and won the Young Player of the Year award in his final year as an apprentice but the Bantams didn’t offer him a permanent deal.

Instead, the midfielder, born in Britain but of Indian origin, spent two years in America playing for Baltimore-based CCBC Essex and then move to Belgium with Royal Racing FC Montegnee before returning to Britain with Hinckley.

Aujla started for Frickley in their 5-1 defeat at Chorley on Saturday and could feature tonight when the Blues host Eastwood Town at Westfield Lane (kick-off 7.45pm).
