Dougie set for Leeds switch

07 Mar 2008 - 06:50:23

Crystal Palace striker Dougie Freedman is hoping to use a proposed loan switch to Leeds United to reignite his Selhurst Park career.

Freedman, 34, has been told he is free to leave the Championship club and seek a loan move until the summer.

The veteran former Scotland international has struggled to hold down a first-team place since Neil Warnock arrived as manager, but doesn't believe an impeding move to Leeds will spend the end of his Eagles career.

"I had a conversation with Neil on Wednesday and he feels I'm not going to play much of a part in the rest of the season," admitted Freedman.

"He is building for next season and I understand that, but not playing games isn't good to me, so I've decided to go to Leeds.

"Palace are in my blood and if I go to Leeds, play some games and help them get promoted then, hopefully, I can come back to Palace and show him that he shouldn't have let me go."
