Neil Sullivan has joined the ever-growing list of players to depart Leeds on loan.
Neil Sullivan has joined the ever-growing list of players to depart Leeds United on loan after moving to Doncaster Rovers.
The former Spurs and Wimbledon shot-stopper is the third veteran to walk through the Elland Road exit door behind Paul Butler and Sean Gregan.
Sullivan was Leeds' number one last term, but the arrival of Dennis Wise at the helm has seen the 34-year-old slide down the pecking order.
Wise brought in Reading's Graham Stack on loan to battle it out with Tony Warner, meaning Sullivan had to look elsewhere for first-team action.
Sullivan has wasted no time in finding a new club after sealing a switch to League One outfit Doncaster until January 1.
One player to leave Donny is young midfielder Anthony Griffiths, who has re-joined ex-boss Dave Penney at Darlington on loan until the New Year.
Meanwhile, Doncaster's new stadium will be known as The Keepmoat Stadium after the club agreed a long-term naming rights sponsorship deal with local Keepmoat plc.
Donny will leave their traditional Belle Vue home for their new 15,000 all-seater stadium on New Year's Day when they host Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town.
