United youngster Aidy White has returned on loan to Oldham where he spent the last couple of months of 2010. White played five games for Oldham, scoring two goals in a fixture schedule that was heavily hit by the weather.

White re-joins Paul Dickov’s team until the end of the season with an option to extend the loan should Oldham reach the play-offs. Simon Grayson sees the move as way for White to gain some first team experience which could be beneficial for his future at Leeds.

White, who Grayson sees as an attacking winger rather than his original full back position, has been hard pressed for opportunities at Elland Road and, with his well-documented troubles with nerves when playing for his childhood team, the move to Oldham is a chance for him to impress regularly at a competitive level. In his few games at Boundary Park at the end of the last year, White showed his natural pace and skill on the ball to claim his first professional goal – a brilliant solo effort.

Hopefully Aidy will continue to improve and hone his skills and return to Leeds a more rounded player.
