Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has revealed he may look to keep Bolton Wanderers loanee Paul Robinson beyond the end of the season.

Robinson, 33, has joined Leeds on an initial one-month loan deal, which may be extended until the end of the current campaign, and with his Bolton contract expiring in the summer, Warnock is considering making the left-back a permanent signing.

"I've been looking to see if I can get one or two leaders in," he said. "Paul is a player who I have had my eye on for a couple of weeks but for whatever reason we just couldn't quite get it over the line.

"Now we've been able to do that I'm delighted. This is a great club for him and it gives us a chance to have a look at him with a view to next season."
