Leeds capture Sodje & Flahavan

Sam Sodje
Sodje has only played one first-team game, for Watford, this season

Leeds United have made a double swoop on loan deadline day with the capture of Reading defender Sam Sodje and Crystal Palace keeper Daryl Flahavan.

29-year-old Nigeria international Sodje has joined until 25th April, but Leeds have an option to extend the deal to include the play-offs if needed.

Sodje has only made one first team appearance this season, while Flahavan, 30, has started three games.

Both will go straight into Leeds' squad for Saturday's home clash with MK Dons.

The pair have a wealth of experience as Sodje made over 100 appearances for Brentford before joining Reading three years ago and has had loan spells at West Brom, Charlton and Watford .

Flahavan started his career at Southampton before moving to Woking and then Southend United, where he made over 300 appearances.
