Crystal Palace winger Jimmy Kebe has joined Leeds on loan until the end of the season.

The Championship club, whose manager Brian McDermott worked with the Mali international at Reading, have the option of a permanent deal in the summer.

McDermott actually scouted Kebe at Reading and later worked with him as a manager, winning promotion to the Premier League in 2012.

"Jimmy is a player that I scouted from France in 2006. He has fantastic pace, he is a real team player, and he made and scored goals for us in the Championship and the Premier League. I'm delighted he's come on board and I'm really looking forward to working with him again," McDermott said.
