Honduras international Ramon Nunez could provide Leeds with a new cutting edge, according to manager Simon Grayson.

Nunez, 25, has made only a couple of first-team appearances since arriving at Elland Road in the summer of 2010, but has returned full of confidence following a loan spell at Scunthorpe at the end of last season.

Grayson said: "What's benefited Ramon is that he played those games for Scunthorpe and played for Honduras over the summer which will have done his confidence good. He's come back looking fit and sharp."

He continued: "We know he's got the talent, it's just about adapting to a different style of football."


Nunez joined Leeds as a free agent after leaving Honduran club Club Deportivo Olimpia in August 2010.

He made two substitute appearances for the Whites in October last year and played eight times for Scunthorpe, scoring three goals, while on loan there in April and May.
