Mystery continues to surround the transfer of midfielder Yosuke Ideguchi as he joined Leeds United in January before being loaned to Spanish side Cultural Leonesa, but how is he getting on?

The 21-year-old signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Yorkshire club last month, as another example of Victor Orta's questionable transfer activity since taking over at Elland Road as director of football.

In a similar deal to that os Ouasim Buoy, 11-time Japan international Ideguchi has joined the Segunda division side on loan until the end of the season.

However, the loan spell is taking time to get going as the midfielder has clocked up just 54 minutes of football for the Spanish side since moving to Leonesa on January 10.

Spread across three appearances, Ideguchi featured for a solitary minute from the substitutes bench last weekend during a 3-2 loss to Real Valladolid.

The 5ft 6in central midfielder is struggling for game time and Leeds will be hoping that improves after sending him on loan with the intention of helping his development.

Ideguchi could feature for the second-tier outfit on Sunday afternoon, as Leonesa travel to Samu Saiz's former side Huesca. The later currently sit at the top of La Liga 2, in what is expected to be a comfortable win for Huesca with Leonesa sitting in the relegation zone.
