Leeds sign youngster Adam Clayton on loan from Manchester City Tim Hodge August 6, 2010 Leeds United 43 Comments Adam Clayton 21 year old Manchester City midfielder, Adam Clayton, has joined Leeds United on a month long loan. Clayton, an England U-20 international, spent last season on loan at Carlisle United, making 36 appearances and fans may remember him for scoring against Leeds in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Area Final. Despite Clayton usually being a more central player the length of the loan suggests he is being brought in to provide cover for the suspended Max Gradel and injured Robert Snodgrass and he could be in the squad to face Derby County on Saturday. This addition comes a few days after the loan signing of youngster Sanchez Watt from Arsenal, signalling Simon Grayson’s intent to bring in young players from Premier League clubs. With chances few and far between for young players at Manchester City, Clayton should be looking to make a good impression for Leeds in the hope of securing more regular football.
