Leeds United have signed striker Paul Dickov on a short-term contract until the end of the season.The 37-year-old has been training with Simon Grayson's side since February after being released by Leicester City. [LNB]Dickov has made over 400 appearances in a 20-year career, including tenures at Manchester City, Blackburn and under Grayson's management at Blackpool. [LNB]The former Scotland international will make his debut in the reserves at Huddersfield Town on Wednesday. [LNB]Dickov began the season at Leicester but joined Derby County on loan until January before being released from his contract by mutual consent. [LNB]Leeds made an attempt to sign the striker last month but the move was blocked as Fifa rules state a player can only represent a maximum of two clubs in one season in the same country. [LNB]Grayson told the club website: "He has been training with us, we all know about him and what he will bring to the squad over the next few months. [LNB]"He brings experience both on the pitch and in and around the dressing room, and he is a good signing for the club."
