Former Saints striker signs for Leeds
8:26am Friday 25th October 2013 in Sport
LEEDS have signed former Saints striker Dexter Blackstock on loan from Nottingham Forest.
Blackstock, 27, a peripheral figure for Forest this season despite signing a new four-and-a-half year contract at the City Ground in January, has joined Leeds for an initial three months.
"I've known Dexter for a long time, being brought up in Oxford," Leeds boss Brian McDermott said. "I'm really pleased we've managed to secure his services.
"He's a really good age for a striker and I'm sure he has many good years in front of him. We are all really looking forward to working with him."
Blackstock, who signed for Saints in 2003 from Oxford United, is expected to go straight into McDermott's squad for Saturday's West Yorkshire derby clash at Huddersfield.
