Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak says he was denied a move to Leeds United.

The Pole has made just six appearances for United this season, after slipping down to fourth in the pecking order at Old Trafford behind Ben Amos, Anders Lindegaard and David De Gea.

However, Kuszczak says he has sought a move away from United, but a move to Leeds, who have been looking for a solution to their goalkeeper problems, turned down.

"I've talked to Ferguson recently. I asked him to let me leave the club now, before the January transfer window.

"I told him I want to play and get back into the national team, because Euro 2012 is just around the corner - but it seems he doesn't care.

"The possibility of a two-month loan to Leeds United came up two weeks later. The club blocked it.

"It was a glimmer of hope for me. It would have reminded the Poland manager about me - but I didn't get the club's approval.

"I have respect for Ferguson because, for me, he's a great manager, but I hope he will let me go in January."

Leeds have brought in Alex McCarthy from Reading on loan after Paul Rachubka, a former United stopper, made numerous errors as Blackpool thrashed Simon Grayson's men last week.
