Cameron Stewart Completes Leeds Switch

Hull City midfielder Cameron Stewart has completed his loan move to Leeds United, also signing a three year-contract that will come into effect in the summer.

It seems to have taken a lifetime to be finalised but Brian McDermott finally has his man. City winger Stewart completed his medical late on Wednesday night and joined up with his new team-mates on Thursday for training.

The original deal will see the former Charlton loanee join on a 93-day emergency loan deal, before being able to sign for the club on a permanent basis in the summer. He has signed a three-year-deal but the niggling part of the deal will see him return to Hull in April, therefore missing the latter and most important part of the season.

The 22-year-old made 55 appearances for Hull, and has had further loan spells at Yeovil, Burnley and Blackburn. Stewart scored against Leeds in our win at the Valley in November, and he is expected to go straight into McDermott's squad for the trip to Hillsborough for our Derby game against Sheffield Wednesday.

Speaking about the deal, McDermott told the club's official website: "Cameron fits the bill as the type of player we are looking to recruit here. He has pace, he gives us something different, and he is hungry to do well.

"We were aware of Cameron's situation, and rules are rules. By joining us in this manner, it means we have a player who we know will be here for the next three and a half years, and we look forward to working with him for the long-term."
