York City sign Leeds United keeper on loan

Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell has moved to York City, initially on a 28-day loan deal, and the club's manager Martin Gray has been speaking to their official website about the youngster's potential.

The 26-year-old joined the Premier League new boys from Fulham for £4m in the summer transfer window but has failed to dislodge Chris Lowe in the starting XI.

Peacock-Farrell, 20, was called-up to the full Northern Ireland squad in August and has also played in the Championship for Leeds.

"He's been very highly recommended", Gray told yorkcityfootballclub.co.uk.

"He's big and very athletic".

Born in Darlington, Peacock-Farrell spent seven years at Middlesbrough's youth academy before joining Leeds in 2013. "He's got a massive future ahead of him but he needs some real senior football now and hopefully we can give him the opportunity".

He made his full Leeds debut, aged just 19, in a 1-1 draw against Queens Park Rangers in the Championship eighteen months ago.

He is now behind Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan at Elland Road.
