Leeds have added another loan signing to their squad in the form of Aston Villa defender Shane Lowry.

The 20-year-old left-back moves to Elland Road until 13th March and joins Gary McSheffrey as Leeds' second loan signing of the January transfer window.

The Australian has only made a couple of senior appearances for Villa but he spent a spell on loan at Championship club Plymouth earlier in the season.

Despite representing the Republic of Ireland at Under 17 and Under 21 level, he has been named in the Australia squad for recent games against the Netherlands and Oman - although he has yet to earn his first cap.

Lowry will not be available for manager Simon Grayson for Leeds' FA Cup game against Spurs on Wednesday, although he is eligible for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
