Leeds United have confirmed the signing of Crystal Palace winger Jimmy Kebe on loan to the end of the season.

The 29-year-old Mali international will remain with United for the second half of the Championship term, and Leeds have secured the option of a permanent deal in the summer.

Kebe is United’s second signing of the January transfer window following Cameron Stewart’s arrival from Hull City yesterday.

Both players are expected to make their debuts against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Manager Brian McDermott, who Kebe played under at Reading, told www.leedsunited.com: “He has fantastic pace, he is a real team player, and he made and scored goals for (Reading) in the Championship and the Premier league.

“I’m delighted he’s come on board and I’m really looking forward to working with him again.”
