Leeds United have signed young Arsenal goalkeeper Sean McDermott on a youth loan.
The 18 year old has signed on a youth loan deal for a month and he made his debut in the under-18`s 2-2 draw at Manchester City on Saturday.
McDermott first signed for Arsenal in 2009 as a 16 year old after impressing Arsenal scouts with his performances for Norwegian side IK Vag as a schoolboy.
He has been a regular for Arsenal`s under 18 side this season and he has also made two appearances for the reserves.
Although born in Norway, he is the current Republic of Ireland under 19 goalkeeper. He has played in all three of their qualifying games for the under 19`s championship finals that take place next year.
So far they have won two and lost one of their three qualifiers and sit second in their group.
With Maik Taylor and Paul Rachubka going out on loan recently, Leeds have McDermott and fellow youngster Alex Cairns as back up to Andy Lonergan.
