Crewe Alexandra have completed the signing of Leeds United’s Nicky Ajose on an emergency loan.
The out-of-favour forward has to moved to Gresty Road until January 5.
Ajose was made available by United head coach Neil Redfearn just four months after joining Leeds in a £150,000 transfer from Peterborough United.
The 23-year-old - a target of former United boss David Hockaday - signed a three-year contract in August but drifted away from the first-team picture after only a handful of appearances.
Crewe are bottom of League One after taking just 15 points their first 18 matches and they were targeting new strikers before the emergency loan window closes tomorrow having averaged less than a goal a game.
