Leeds negotiate extension of McCartney loan deal

Sunderland's George McCartney has signed an extension to remain with Leeds until the end of 2010. The 29-year-old left-back will now stay at Elland Road for a third month.

The Northern Irishman has been a regular in the Leeds side during his time in Yorkshire and made his 12th consecutive appearance for the Whites in Saturday's goalless draw at Reading.

McCartney told United's official website: "I'm here until the end of the month now.

"I wanted to come here and get back playing. We were a bit up and down at the start but we're on a roll now. We're more solid at the back."
