Forward joins Crewe until January...
United forward Nicky Ajose has joined Crewe Alexandra on an emergency loan deal until January 5, the club can now confirm.
Ajose, a summer signing from Peterborough United, signed a three-year deal at Elland Road in August but has since found first-team opportunities limited.
Following his switch to West Yorkshire, the 23-year-old has featured just four times in all competitions and has not been involved since David Hockaday’s departure three months ago.
He made his debut in the opening day defeat to Millwall and his last appearance for the club to date came as a second-half substitute in August's home loss to Brighton.
Ajose has now made the move to League One in a bid to play regular football ahead of the loan window's closure at 5pm on Thursday.
