Adam Clayton

Leeds have allowed Adam Clayton and Ramon Nunez to go out on loan to gain some first team football.

Clayton, signed from Man City, has had limited opportunities and spent part of the season on loan at Peterborough. He now joins MK Dons in League One until the end of the season including play-offs. Simon Grayson sees 22 year old Clayton as a player for the future and is keen to allow him to develop out on loan. Leeds have included a 24 hour recall clause that can be used after the first 28 days of his loan.

Also out on loan is Ramon Nunez who has joined Scunthorpe United on an initial one month deal. Nunez is currently away with Honduras, despite having very limited playing time at Elland Road.  He will join up with Scunthorpe after the international break. After his recent good performances for the reserves many fans have been calling for him to be tried out by Grayson. This loan move will allow us to see if he’s able to cut it in the Championship.

With Jake Livermore arriving on loan from Spurs earlier today to provide competition for places, it seems slightly strange that we should ship out two players. It may be that neither Clayton or Nunez were near breaking into the first team and Grayson wanted someone who could compete for a place or that the manager has his eyes set on another loan signing, though some may doubt that.

As always, we’ll bring you updates on players out on loan in our regular Loan Watch feature.
