The White signing

29 October 2013

Nigel Clough has made his first signing as Blades boss with the loan addition of Aidan White from Leeds United.


The 22-year-old will remain a Blade until 1st January 2014 and is in contention to make his United debut in Saturday's clash at Shrewsbury Town.


Yorkshire-born White came through the youth system at Elland Road, having originally joined the Whites in 2002.


Equally at home at left-back or on the left of a midfield four, White made his debut for Leeds at the age of 16, in a League Cup tie against Crystal Palace in August 2008.


The former England U19s and Republic of Ireland U21s international has made over 100 senior appearances for the West Yorkshire outfit.


Speaking of White's capture, Clough remarked: "We have a heavy programme ahead, especially with the FA Cup, and someone like Aidy will give us another option and that bit of extra quality."
