Leeds have signed Sheffield United's Geoff Horsfield on loan until Christmas with a view to a permanent move.
Horsfield has been stuck in the Sheffield United reserves
The 32-year-old striker made only one league start for the Blades last season after a row with manager Neil Warnock.
"We are going to take him on loan to see how Geoff performs," manager Kevin Blackwell told the Leeds website.
"If things go well we have got the option to complete something. He is raring to go and it will be nice to see him in a white shirt."
The former West Brom striker is expected to make his debut against Norwich in Leeds' opening game of the season against Norwich on Saturday.
"I just want to be playing football regularly," Horsfield told BBC Radio Sheffield.
"I haven't been given that chance with Sheffield United. It's nice to still be wanted.
"Leeds is a massive club with great facilities and are gearing up for the Premiership and my aim is to help them reach that goal.
"The last eight months have been a nightmare. I've been stuck in the reserves and last week I was thrown in with the kids. Neil Warnock must not rate me as a player and I don't know why."
