Watt returns to Leeds

03 August 2010 02:30
Leeds have signed Arsenal youngster Sanchez Watt on a season-long loan deal. The England Under-19 international winger enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Elland Road last season, playing six games to help the Yorkshire club clinch promotion from League One. Watt is United's eighth summer signing and is likely to temporarily fill the gap left by Robert Snodgrass, who is out for around a month due to a knee injury. Leeds manager Simon Grayson was pleased with the signing, and said: "We're delighted we've been managed to bring Sanchez back. "He did well last year and he's another good addition to our squad. He's a young and up and coming player who has plenty to offer and his arrival will only increase the competition for places." Meanwhile, Tom Lees has left Leeds for Bury on a loan deal until January.
