Alfie McCalmont is set to leave Leeds United on loan for a third time this January, after failing to secure a move in the summer.

Less than a month stands between Leeds officially conducting their January business, and there are incomings and outgoings to be considered.

Alfie McCalmont looks a player likely to be moved on from Leeds in the near future, after failing to find a new club in the summer months when it became clear he was surplus to requirements.

Here, we look at everything we know so far about McCalmont’s January…

What do we know so far?

After not moving out on loan in January, McCalmont has been sitting in the under-21s this season as a way to keep up his fitness, and he has performed well – scoring one and assisting two.

However, sources have indicated to Leeds All Over that a loan move is on the cards for the Northern Irish international.

He is contracted until 2024, meaning this transfer wouldn’t be a permanent one just yet.

Is a deal likely?

St Mirren are the side most likely to seal a deal in the new year, with the Scottish Premiership side managed by McCalmont’s former manager elsewhere, Stephen Robinson.

Robinson was in charge when McCalmont moved to Morecambe last season, with the midfielder’s best form coming in the first two thirds of the season when the 47-year-old was at the helm.
