Leeds land Barkley on loan

Everton teenager Ross Barkley has travelled across the Pennines to join Championship club Leeds United.

The midfielder will stay at Elland Road for one month in the hope of securing a run of first-team football.

The 19-year-old has already had a loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday this season, playing 13 times and scoring four goals.

Barkley has made just two appearances for the Toffees this current campaign both as a second half substitute.

He could feature in Saturday's local derby at Barnsley.
