Leeds United have signed Sunderland striker Connor Wickham on loan for the rest of the season, according to the Mirror.
The 20 year old has struggled to make an impression on the Black Cats’ first team under Gus Poyet, and has already had a successful stint at Sheffield Wednesday earlier in the campaign where he scored eight times in eleven games.
He moved back to his parent club last month following an injury to Steven Fletcher, but has once again been deemed surplus to requirements following Fletcher’s return to fitness, and with the arrival of Argentina international Ignacio Scocco.
He joins a Leeds United side who have fallen seven points behind the Championship’s top six, having failed to score in either of their last two games.
The England U21 international could make his debut at Loftus Road on Saturday afternoon as Brian McDermott’s side take on fourth place Queens Park Rangers.
