Leeds United have confirmed they have an agreement with Sunderland to sign Will Buckley.

Leeds United have confirmed on their official website that they have agreed a deal to sign Sunderland winger Will Buckley on loan.

The Whites added Stuart Dallas from Brentford over the summer in a bid to improve their options on the flanks, whilst DR Congo international Jordan Botaka arrived from Excelsior on deadline day.

Still though, manager Uwe Rosler has been on the lookout for further additions out wide - and he has now got his man in a Premier League swoop.

Leeds have confirmed on their official website that they have agreed a deal to sign Sunderland winger Will Buckley on a 93-day loan until January, with the player only officially completing his move next week.

The agreement means that Buckley will start training with Leeds immediately, giving him chance to get to grips with Rosler's methods ahead of his debut against Birmingham City next week.

Buckley, 25, has been frozen out at Sunderland under Dick Advocaat, making no appearances at all this season, proving that he had no future at the Stadium of Light.

Now, the former Brighton man is back in the Championship, and he will certainly add pace and dribbling ability out on the right hand side for Leeds, providing another attacking threat for Rosler - and if he impresses enough during his time at Elland Road, he could yet sign a permanent deal with the club come January.
