Leeds boss Grayson not in discussions for Gradel's loan spell to be made permanent

Leeds boss Simon Grayson admits he has not entered talks to turn Max Gradel's loan spell into a permanent transfer from Leicester in January. Substitute Gradel's 89th-minute strike secured a 1-0 win over Leyton Orient on Tuesday after the League One leaders had struggled for much of the night.

Grayson said: "We haven't discussed turning the loan deal into a permanent transfer as yet. It will be up to ourselves and Leicester to sort out whether that happens."

He added: "A moment of brilliance from Max won the game for us. He has certainly made an impact while on loan to us. We have already extended his loan until January, though Leicester can recall him at any time."
