Football: Chapman Back at Leeds

Riley, Catherine, The Independent (London, England)



Leeds United will today make one of the most surprising transfers of the season by re-signing Lee Chapman. The 36-year-old striker, top scorer in the club's championship-winning season of 1991/92, will join on a month's loan as cover for Howard Wilkinson's depleted attack. His move from Ipswich comes almost six years to the day after his first arrival at Elland Road.

Chapman is in line for a debut against one of his previous clubs, West Ham, on Saturday, when Brian Deane will be suspended and Tony Yeboah and Phil Masinga are on African Nations' Cup duty. "We find ourselves in a situation where we are down to the bare bones in terms of strikers. Lee offers us insurance, and given what's at stake, that's important," Wilkinson said.

Rick Parry, the Premier League chief executive, is to go to Brussels on Thursday to meet European Commissioners in an attempt to clarify the situation regarding the "three foreigner rule" with Uefa.

Sunderland fans unable to get a ticket for the FA Cup third-round replay with Manchester United will at least be able to watch the game live on television. The all-ticket Roker Park replay has been brought forward 24 hours to Tuesday 16 January for screening by Sky Sports.
