Aidy White loaned to Oldham

Leeds’ left sided player Aidy White has joined League One side Oldham Athletic on loan until January. The winger has been gradually making a name for himself in the Leeds United side over the last couple of years, making 27 appearances since his début in 2008.

A lack of fitness has halted Aidy’s progress so far this season however and Simon Grayson revealed he would look to send him out on loan to gain match fitness and experience.

It’s unclear as to what position the 19-year old will occupy at Oldham, but after starting his career as a left-back, Simon Grayson did reveal earlier this year that he thinks Aidy White would be better suited to a position on the left of midfield.

International round-up

In other news, Max Gradel will have to wait a little longer to make his Ivory Coast début after missing out in their 3-1 defeat to Poland last night.

Davide Somma meanwhile, did get his first cap for South Africa in what must have been a somewhat bitter-sweet moment for the striker. South Africa lost 1-0 to the USA, but Somma still managed to shine for Bafana Bafana and was named man of the match by American sports network, ESPN.
