Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says the loan move for youngster Dominic Poleon is a great opportunity for him.
Poleon has signed for Sheffield United for the remainder of the season with the Blades fighting for promotion from League One.
Warnock says he it is a great opportunity for the 19-year-old to get some first team football and play regularly.
Speaking on Tuesday night, Warnock said, “It is important that he can get some football. He did well when he was at Bury, he just needs to play regularly and keep his position. He is getting much stronger and better in training.
“It is a good opportunity for him and Sheffield United are a good club for him to go to as they are doing well in their league. He should be able to play with confidence and I am hopeful that he can stick a few goals in.”
Sheffield United moved up to fifth place in League One on Tuesday night with their win at Bury and they are now just three points behind the automatic promotion places.
They will be hoping that Poleon can help them go one better this season after they lost out last season in the play-off final when they lost on penalties to Huddersfield Town.
