Andy O'Brien: Leeds United defender will not be allowed out on loan after being linked with West Ham

Leeds United manager Simon Grayson insists he will not be letting Andy O'Brien head out on loan after also praising the form of striker Ross McCormack.

Experienced defender O'Brien has made just three appearances in the Championship this season and has been linked with a temporary move to West Ham United.

However, while Grayson is prepared to let some of his squad head out on loan, he has no plans to lose the services of O'Brien.

"I won't be letting him out on loan," said Grayson in the Yorkshire Evening Post.

"There are certain players who'll be available on loan but Andy won't be one of them."

Scotland international McCormack, meanwhile, has been linked with a January move to Wolves after scoring 10 goals for Leeds this term.

Grayson said: "He's one of the best goalscorers in the Championship.

"He's not been scoring in the last couple of games but his all-round game's been good. He's only a goal or two away from starting another run like he did at the start of the season."
