Poleon back at Elland Road

20 November 2012

Leeds have recalled on-loan striker Dominic Poleon from Bury just 24 hours after the 19-year-old agreed to extend his stay at the npower League One club.

Poleon, along with Whites team-mate and fellow loanee Zac Thompson, was expected to feature for the Shakers at Scunthorpe on Tuesday, but with injuries to several of his key attacking options manager Neil Warnock has decided to exercise the 24-hour recall clause in the forward's deal.

"Ross [McCormack] isn't 100 per fit as yet and with Luke Varney missing out for the weekend we're a few bodies light," the United boss told the club's official website.

"Dominic has done well at Bury. He's played some matches, scored some goals, and he comes back to us match fit."

Poleon found the net three times in his eight appearances for the Gigg Lane outfit.
