Another young Leeds United U23 player is going out on loan.

Sam Dalby, the striker who joined the club last January transfer window from Leyton Orient, is going out on loan to Morecambe Town in League Two.

Dalby is a 6’3” teenager who has already played in League Two with Leyton Orient in the London club’s last season in the Football League before getting relegated in somewhat controversial fashion. He played 16 times in the league in the 2016-17 season, starting ten times and coming off of the bench another six.

Dalby joins Morecambe Town with the team in dire need of an influx of talent. Morecambe sits in 22nd place in League Two, only two points and one position above Macclesfield Town in the relegation spots. They will have a hard time avoiding the drop this season and they haven’t won in their last five matches.

Perhaps Dalby can come in and provide some spark for the Shrimps, as they will need all the help they can get.
