Sam Greenwood, Jack Harrison and Adam Forshaw were practicing free-kicks after Leeds United’s first training session during their mid-season break in Spain, Leeds Live reports.
Leeds are currently gearing up for a friendly with Elche before they return to Yorkshire to face the likes of Real Sociedad and Monaco at Elland Road.
Jesse Marsch will relish the chance to work with the large majority of his squad after a mixed start to the Premier League season. Leeds have been bright at times. However, they still have a lot to do to pull themselves away from trouble in the top-flight.
Harrison, Greenwood and Forshaw all working free-kicks after Leeds training
Improvement is needed. And one area where Leeds need to be better is from set-piece situations. So it is probably not a massive surprise that some of the squad have been putting extra work in.

In fact, Leeds Live reports that Greenwood, Forshaw and Harrison were all taking free-kicks at Dani van den Heuvel after training in Spain.
It is certainly no surprise to see Greenwood and Harrison involved. Harrison has probably taken most of our set-pieces this season. It has been a common occurrence to see Harrison and Brenden Aaronson stood over corners and free-kicks, seemingly trying to create some uncertainty.
Greenwood meanwhile, is perhaps one of the best strikers of the ball at the club. He provided a glimpse of his quality in the dramatic win over Bournemouth before the break.
He scored one from outside the box. And he set up another with a corner onto the head of Liam Cooper. So, for many, he would get the nod ahead of Harrison whenever he is on the pitch.
Forshaw is perhaps a surprise addition to the trio. The 31-year-old has still never scored for Leeds. So perhaps he feels that a set-piece may represent his best chance to finally get off the mark.
