Leeds United will complete the signing of on loan midfielder Danny Pugh when the transfer window reopens in January.

Pugh is on loan until the New Year from Premier League side Stoke City and Leeds boss Simon Grayson says the deal will be completed in January.

Leeds also timed the signing of Pugh on loan to coincide with the transfer window reopening.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post , Grayson said, “It got cut after the Leicester game (on November 6), when there was an international break, and then started again. It runs right through to January when he`ll sign permanently.”

The deal will see Pugh join Leeds for a second time having played for Leeds previously under Kevin Blackwell between 2004-2006.

Pugh has been an almost ever present since re-joining the club in October.

He has missed just the Burnley game through injury and started twelve of Leeds other thirteen games.
