Leeds striker Jack McKay has secured a loan deal at Airdrieonians until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old striker will join the Scottish club immediately after it was confirmed on their official website.

McKay was signed by Leeds in January 2016 but he is yet to make an appearance for the first team.

He is hoping to pick up regular first team action in the Scottish League One with Airdrieonians who currently sit in second place in the table.

The Scottish club also announced the news on their official Twitter page on Sunday.

McKay has played all of his football in England despite growing up in Glasgow and he has attracted interest from a number of top sides during his development.

After signing for Doncaster Rovers at the age of nine, he progressed through the academy ranks before being picked up by Leeds at the start of last year.

The Scottish striker has signed a six-month deal with Airdrieonians and it was confirmed by the club that he will line-up in the squad to face Albion Rovers in Monday evening’s clash.

At the age of 18, McKay made his debut for Doncaster Rovers’ first team in a League One clash against Sheffield United but they suffered a 1-0 defeat.

He featured in the next game against Rochdale and then picked up a further two league appearances in 2015 before sealing a move to Leeds seven months later.

In other Leeds news, these are the three players most likely to sign for the club in January.
