Adam Clayton

Clayton - one for the future?

Young midfielder Adam Clayton has been sent on a month’s loan to Peterborough United.

Clayton was signed by Leeds early in the season from Manchester City but has been restricted to just four substitute appearances. Clayton spent much of last season playing for Carlisle in League One and will go straight into the Peterborough’s squad for their trip to Southampton.

It is thought that the opportunity of first team football will be beneficial to the youngster who is tipped as being a player for the future by Simon Grayson and has been suggested by many fans as a potential replacement in the first team for the outward bound Bradley Johnson.

The move comes the day after Aidan White was loaned out to League One side Oldham. Both players will be aiming to impress on their loan spells in an attempt to work their way into Simon Grayson’s plans.
