Leeds United have signed Sunderland winger Will Buckley on an emergency loan deal.

The 25-year-old, who has been training with Leeds this week, has finalised a deal that will keep him at Elland Road until January 2 and could make his debut in the home game against Birmingham on Saturday.

I don’t think Sunderland were that keen on me going at first but they decided that was probably best for me and best for them, too. When Leeds came in, that was the club I wanted to go to. It’s a massive club with a good manager. I want to get some games and help this big club get back to where it needs to be. I just want to get back to playing football now and I think this is a great opportunity for me at a good club to get back to where I need to be.
