Will Buckley: Agrees to leave Sunderland to join Leeds on loan

Will Buckley admits his move to Leeds “feels like a fresh start” after signing from Sunderland on an loan deal until January 2.

The 25-year-old has been training with the club since the start of last week and he could make his debut against Birmingham on Saturday.

Former Rochdale man Buckley is an experienced Championship player after stints at Brighton and Watford and he says he couldn’t wait to get some games for “a big club”.

Buckley told the club’s website: “I wanted to go out and get some games at a big club and Leeds was the perfect opportunity for me to do that.

“There was interest in the summer but after the transfer window closed Leeds were still there and they showed they were keen to get me.

“I was keen to come here and eventually it got sorted out, which I was pleased about. Even though the loan deal didn’t start until this week, I was glad to get with the lads and get training.

“It feels like a fresh start for me. I’ve got a point to prove that I can get back to the Premier League. To play games and to perform well is my aim now.”
