Leeds United extend Nicky Ajose loan at Crewe until end of the season

Despite showing good form in League One, Leeds have decided not to take the player back.

Yesterday Leeds United let one of their strikers go, today they have done the same.

Noel Hunt left permanently yesterday, cancelling his contract by mutual consent to force through a deal to Ipswich Town. Nicky Ajose on the other hand is set to stay at Crewe Alexandra.

Ajose was signed by Leeds United in the summer but was not used by the club after Dave Hockaday's sacking, spending most of his time watching from the sidelines.

So he was allowed to join Crewe on loan at the end of November, on a deal until that ended on the 5th of January.

He has certainly been a hit at Gresty Road.

In his five games for the club he has scored three goals, including an excellent brace against Oldham Athletic.

With that in mind it was perhaps an option that Leeds would welcome him back with open arms this month.

But he will instead spend the rest of the season with Crewe, much to the joy of the Railwaymen fans.
