Leeds United are set to loan forward Nicky Ajose back to Crewe Alexandra until the end of the season, as reported by Adam Pope of BBC Radio Leeds.

The rapid striker joined the Whites in the summer while Dave Hockaday was head coach of the Elland Road side.
However, with the sacking of Hockaday, the former Forest Green Rovers manager, came the end of Ajose’s first team appearances.
He played infrequently for Leeds’ Under 21 side until Neil Redfearn arranged a loan deal for him to join Crewe until the January transfer window.
It now seems as though Leeds have agreed to loan him to Crewe for the rest of the campaign.
It remains to be seen what Ajose’s future at Leeds will be.
He was something of a shock signing in the summer, having played only infrequently for Peterborough.
Ajose signed a three year deal, on reportedly good wages, meaning that he might prove difficult to move on on a permanent basis.
