Ross Barkley

Leeds United have signed Everton midfielder Ross Barkley on loan until 12 February.

The 19-year-old made 13 appearances for Sheffield Wednesday during a loan spell earlier this season.

He is the second player to move to Elland Road in successive days after midfielder Michael Tonge signed a two-and-a-half-year deal on Thursday.

"I'm delighted to get Ross and I'd like to welcome him to the club," boss Neil Warnock told the club website.external-link

"He's got a great attitude and I don't doubt he will end up a top player."

Barkley could make his debut for the Championship side in Saturday's Yorkshire derby at Barnsley.
