Ormerod heads to Leeds
Southampton striker Brett Ormerod
Southampton striker Brett Ormerod has joined Championship side Leeds on a month's loan in an attempt to secure some first-team football.

Ormerod has been out of favour recently at St Mary's and Saints head coach Steve Wigley hopes he will benefit from his spell at Elland Road.

Wigley said: "We're not looking to sell him. He needs games, though, and hasn't had many here this season.

"Hopefully he'll come back with the benefit of five or six under his belt."

Leeds are currently 10th in the Coca-Cola Championship and manager Kevin Blackwell has been looking to strengthen his striking options since the start of the season.

Blackwell added: "Brett is a proven player.

"He has attracted a lot of interest from a lot of clubs, but as soon as he knew we were interested, he wanted to come here."
