Leeds eager to close permanent deal for Sunderland defender McCartney

Leeds United are ready to sign Sunderland defender George McCartney.

The Daily Mail says Leeds will attempt to tie up a £750,000 deal for McCartney after further extending his loan move.

The Sunderland defender, who almost moved to Birmingham in the summer, will spend a third month at Elland Road after proving a success.

Once that expires, after the match against Portsmouth on December 28, manager Simon Grayson will try to agree terms with counterpart Steve Bruce for a full-time switch.
