The former Manchester United and Liverpool trainee will stay with Rotherham until January 10.

Wootton, who moved to Leeds from Manchester United in the summer of 2013, has struggled for opportunities at Elland Road and follows Noel Hunt and Nicky Ajose out of the club.

Hunt joined Ipswich Town earlier today and Nicky Ajose’s emergency loan to Crewe Alexandra was confirmed yesterday afternoon.

The Football League’s loan window close at 5pm tonight. Leeds are not expected to make any new signings before the deadline.
