Jimmy Kebe will remain on loan at Leeds United until the end of the season despite his injury woes.

Crystal Palace winger Jimmy Kebe will complete his loan spell with Leeds United despite being ruled out for the Easter period through injury.

The midfielder has missed the Whites' last nine fixtures with a hamstring problem, but manager Brian McDermott is keen to use him again should he return before the end of the season.

"Jimmy won't be fit for the weekend but he's still with us and he's doing his rehab here," McDermott told the Yorkshire Evening Post. "I hope he gets the chance to play again because I'd really like him to properly show what he can do.

"Sometimes it doesn't work out for a player at a certain club, and he's not had an easy time here, but he's got so much to offer. We've all seen that from him in the past."

Kebe has turned out just four times for Leeds, scoring one goal.
