Leeds United complete deal for Paul Dickov

Leeds United have signed striker Paul Dickov on a short-term contract until the end of the season.

The 37-year-old has been training with Simon Grayson's side since February after being released by Leicester City.

Dickov has made over 400 appearances in a 20-year career, including tenures at Manchester City, Blackburn and under Grayson's management at Blackpool.

The former Scotland international will make his debut in the reserves at Huddersfield Town on Wednesday.

Dickov began the season at Leicester but joined Derby County on loan until January before being released from his contract by mutual consent.

Leeds made an attempt to sign the striker last month but the move was blocked as Fifa rules state a player can only represent a maximum of two clubs in one season in the same country.

Grayson told the club website: "He has been training with us, we all know about him and what he will bring to the squad over the next few months.

"He brings experience both on the pitch and in and around the dressing room, and he is a good signing for the club."
