Bailey Peacock-Farrell has joined Vanarama National League North club York City on a month's loan from SkyBet Championship side Leeds United.

Leeds opted to retain Peacock-Farrell beyond the end of the summer transfer window but have now allowed him to move to York after lining up a deal to sign Polish 21-year-old Kamil Miazek, a free agent who was formerly on the books of Feyenoord.

Peacock-Farrell, 20, was called-up to the full Northern Ireland squad in August and has also played in the Championship for Leeds.

York's newly-appointed manager Martin Gray said: "He's been very highly recommended". "He's big, 6ft 4ins, and very athletic".

Peacock-Farrell made his Leeds debut against Queens Park Rangers back in May 2016 but he has not got another opportunity since then and, with Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan ahead of him in the pecking order, a loan move is the best option for all concerned.

He goes straight into the City squad for Saturday's game at Leamington.

He is now behind Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan at Elland Road.
