Rivals hope to snap-up Leeds man


Leeds United defender Alex Bruce is hoping to make his loan move to Huddersfield Town a permanent one, according to the Star.

Bruce has yet to feature for the Elland Road club this season, and had moved to The Terriers hoping to spearhead their attempts to reach the Npower Championship.

But despite having failed to feature for Lee Clark's side, Bruce wants to make his move from Leeds permanent.

Bruce said: “It’s been frustrating at Leeds because I’ve been training hard without having any real prospect of playing matches.

“If you aren’t in the first-team frame, then all you have to work towards is the occasional development match.

“I want to play competitive football, coming here gives me that chance, and I really want to make the most of it and force my way into the manager’s plans."

The 27-year-old has become the first player in ten years to move from Leeds to Huddersfield, and just the ninth since the war.

He was an unused substitute against Charlton last week, a game which saw Town lose their 44-match unbeaten run.
